Hi Barney0209,

Welcome to the BAIE COMEAU TRAVEL FORUM

And I see you are fairly NEW to the TA FORUMS… so a BIG Welcome Aboard as well !!

Baie Comeau is pronounced as RONW has pointed out as Bay Koe-Moe… easy way to remember is just think of that old crooner Perry Como… same pronunciation as his last name.

Wikipedia Photo (Perry Como) = …wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Perry_Como_NYWTS.jpg

Hope this is helpful,

Cheers!

Not Bay but Bai or Bey, otherwise think of something between Bay and Bee.

Than Como, like the lake in Italy. You don't pronounce the E in neither Baie not Comeau..

Rick how do Bay and Bey sound different. I am saying them out loud here and they just sound the same! Just like gray and grey or lay and lei.

One of my francophone thing... Yes all 3 other contributors were right Bay or Bey, thanks Bogwoppit, I stand corrected. I should reread what I write so as not to sound silly, here it was just a question of Bay being more explosive or a bit longer at the end. Bey being like the Bey of Algier! lol

But both Wine-4-2 and I were writing at the same time and both of our references for como were good.

And it is not even the Bey of Algier but the Bey of Tunis. I need a caffeine fix!

Thank you! I was saying it BY CO-MO. I don't want to go there and sounds like an idiot. Can't WAIT to go see it!
