At first I thought you were talking about Jeremy McGrath....but it looks like maybe you are talking about Shane McElrath?

Not sure what the correct pronunciation of Shane's last name is...Mac-El-Rath?

Different name. Different pronunciation.

That’s how Shane’s name is pronounced. The announcers used to say it as it looks until they were corrected.

Technically neither is wrong it means the same thing.

Means the same but pronounced different. Always thought Mc = ‘mick’ and Mac = ‘mack’. I’ve only heard RJ and the Newf prounce it with ‘mick’. Point is, does it matter if they / we say it wrong. Is it up to the rider to correct everyone? It’s their future.

Fear - being scared

Pear - fruit

Spelled the same. Pronounced different. Use your brain, man.

It's always written "tree fiddy" but I'm sure I've heard people say "chree fiddy". They need to stop. Now.

I’ve never heard Shane’s name pronounced incorrectly. Maybe your hearing is bad.

Here's a quick "Grammar with Falcon" interjection. Hopefully it doesn't derail the thread"

You all probably know about synonyms and [/i]antonyms[/i], I'm guessing. Respectively, different words which have the same meaning, and words which sound the same but are opposite in meaning. There is one other class called heteronym which is a word spelled the same but with a different meaning. Here are some examples:

Dove = a bird
Dove = Jumped in headfirst

Lead = almost killed the minibike industry
Lead = go first

Bass = a fish
Bass = Bootsy Collins' musical instrument of choice

The point is, the English language is screwy. Lots of ways to pronounce things.

Never heard it pronounced with a "G" all the time I've known Shane's dad Max. It was always pronounced as
"Mac-El-rath", I know there's no "a" but that's the way it was always said. Max was a very fast local pro back in the day and still has "The Max Cycle Service" that worked on a lot of our bikes when I lived and raced in western N.C.

People use loose instead of lose on here everyday and you're worried about Mac vs Mc?

I think it's pretty common for names that start as "McEl..." for the "mc" to be pronounced "mac".

There is an old football player named Hugh McElhenny, who pronounces it "mac". There was another football players named Vann McElroy who pronounced it "mac", etc.

Also Reba McEntire.

Sounds the same but means something different is a homonym.

Antonym just means opposites. Spelling or sound is not a part of the classification.

Your definition for heteronym is partially correct, but too narrow.

Where's Bauer and Wordnerd when we need them?

Juss sayin'. Yer welcome.
