He Who Must Not Be Mispronounced

In a recent tweet, ginger billionaire J.K. Rowling said that we've all been pronouncing "Voldemort" wrong for the past eighteen years. She claims the "t" is silent, so his name is really pronounced "Vol-de-more."

You know, it's a shame that Rowling didn't have some sort of platform, like, oh, I don't know, maybe a series of eight highly successful, big budget Hollywood films, that she could have used to school us in the proper pronunciation of her villain.

Ah well. Better luck next time, J.K.!
