Good thing I don't say it very often or I might get confused after this. :)

It's always been car-mul for me. We have a town here in my state that is called car-mul too, but out in California they call it the other way.

The connection to the town is ultimately biblical.

both but first i think peacans p e c a n people might look to see how words are spelled in order to say it properly. Someone brought it to my attention that i said leotards wrong, the Maine way I had never read the word.

CAramel.

I don't use the word very often, myself. As I recall, I usually pronounce it either car-a-mel or the the way I clicked on in answer options.

gronk. what state are you in? I am in Maine would never say it without using r it that way.

I'm not a native speaker of English, but, if I were to say it, it would probably be something like "karrah-mell".

Kind of a combination of both. Something like car-uh-mul

Neither.  I pronounce it CA-ra-mel.

I have absolutely no idea how political talk made it on my post about caramel pronunciation. Like I genuinely do not understand why you brought up the last paragraph. But okay, I guess...

And yes, this new crop of Democrats are disgusting, but they are playing to the base that put them where they are.
