Teche: You’re Probably Saying it Wrong

Geoffrey Chaucer, 17th C, Public Domain http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Geoffrey_Chaucer_%2817th_century%29.jpgIf you’ve ever wondered about the correct pronouncation of Teche, or even if you just love listening to a bit of Middle English, here’s a real treat:

Professor Jess B. Bessinger, Jr. reads the General Prologue from Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales.

About 17 minutes in is the sentence ending with ‘And Gladly Teche’ (from whence cometh our University Motto and blog name).

So forget about ‘tekky’ or ‘tetchy’, it seems Teche should be pronounced ‘tay-ch’.
