Everyone knows Gal Gadot’s name after the amazing run of Wonder Woman and all the marketing and promotions the actress was a part of in 2017. But would you believe people just can’t say it right?
According to CNN, language-learning app Babbel commissioned the US Captioning Company “to identify prominent words in 2017 that were tough for people on TV to say.” And Gal Gadot made the list.
The service says her name should be pronounced gal gah-dott. They also mentioned that the actress’s last name is sometimes mispronounced with a silent “t.”
The other words on the list that people just couldn’t pronounce this year include bokeh, coulrophobia, dotard, fibromyalgia, Namibia, nuclear, Puerto Rico, Pyongyang, and Weinstein.
Have you ever mispronounced Gal Gadot? Certainly, no one will be forgetting her pronunciation now, as she is currently receiving many accolades for her performance in Wonder Woman, and is set to reprise the role in Wonder Woman 2.
Wonder Woman is available on home video and streaming. Its cast includes Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, David Thewlis as Sir Patrick Morgan, Elena Anaya as Doctor Isabel Maru (Doctor Poison), and Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff.
