What? One is ah-duh-laid, the other is ah-del-heit.

Sound nothing alike!

Dietrich Says:


Thank you! Adelaide is the alternate spelling!

But this is pronounced ah-del-heit.

I actually find this quainter and more graceful than Adelaide, which is a little too heavy and aristocratic.

abertawe Says:


I think it starts to sound the same if you're using an Aussie pronunciation of Adelaide.

makanani3 Says:


No, this one is German and they're definitely pronounced differently. Adelaide is add-uh-layd, Adelheid is ah-dell-hide

EH123 Says:


This is NOT I repeat NOT an alternative spelling for Adelaide! It's pronounced ah-dell-hide!!!
