    So then Sabrina should be pronouncing everyones name with her "regular accent". And if she's trying to better her english then should Patrick be trying to say her name the way it should be pronounced? The way Carlos says it?

    Sabrina has an accent that she suppresses when saying the names of her PC friends. If she's trying to use Patrick's speech pattern then he should use hers.


    ???
    She pronounces Carlos' name properly, the way she has pronounced it since she met him. She pronounces Patrick's name the way everyone else in Port Chuck does. She is using the names they were given at birth - unless there are back stories we haven't heard yet.


    Unless Patrick suddenly became a Spanish name everyone including Sabrina is pronouncing Patrick correctly.

    However the only one currently pronouncing Carlos's name correctly is Sabrina.

    I think the rest of the GH characters are safe since I believe no one but Carlos has a Spanish name (hint Carlos is Spanish for Charles). That is until Juan arrives.

    I suppose we should be grateful that Juan's name is Juan and not Pedro, because I sure that would throw some current posters for a complete wobbly loop!


    Haaaaaa..SERIOUSLY!!!!!

    I can just see Robin calling him.."Patricio"...yes..this is how you pronounce his name in spanish for those who are annoyed with the pronunciations of the names.


    seems to me that people are confusing the idea of having an accent with the concept of pronunciation of a name or word that may be ethnic.

    I'm sure there are other spanish words she could be using instead the english versions. And just say Carlos even with an accent. It doesn't have to be dragged out like Carrrrrloooose. It's way over done.

    I think you hit the nail on the head. It must be very confusing for some because unlike Carlos, Sabrina is not a Spanish name; it's Celtic.

    Overdone is right! To nit pick about something so normal and completely understood is freakin laughable. Get a course or do a little research if it's that important. If its not then drop it and stop being rude. Don't complain when its reversed. You love to complain when it comes to anything usa related so remember that.

    Laughing is good, no?

    Difference of opinion is all. Not a complaint, just an observation.

    .......sigh
    When did Sally Field become a hispanic woman? ....Seriously??

    ....shaking my head...looking for a wall.

    Hydrangea.....this is about a latina woman pronouncing "Carlos" the way it is supposed to be pronounced. Non Latinos normally do not pronounce them the same way. I hope this helped...cuz I need therapy right now! OY!

    Why does Carlos say Sabrina's name with an accent? He doesn't say anyone else's name with one. Sabrina isn't a spanish name that I know of.
