10-diciembre-de-2008The Pulitzer Prizes were awarded last week to a deserving bunch of talented people. And the least we can do in honoring them, by golly, is pronounce the name of their award correctly. Most reporters and editors call it the “pew-lit-sir.” But the awards were begun by Joseph Pulitzer, not Pepe Le Pew. It is pronounced “PULL-it-sir”. Really. Check out the Pulitzer Prize website.
