Folks around here tend to leave out the 'r' sound. "Pahk the cah in Hahvud yahd." is the classic example. There are, of course, many others. It is also common to add an 'r' to words that don't end with one.

BTW, I say, "stir", not "stear". Also, ahnt, not ant to refer to a parent's female sibling.

Hey, I think I grew up hearing it both ways for what ever reason. I lean towards gib-lets... but I NEVER liked giblet gravy... NEVER!!! Hubby says giblets too and he is from Indiana, but has been severly Texan-ized!

My dictionary also goes for the jiblet pronunciation.

But the language does evolve, and I don't think the cut of one's jib should be manifest by how one pronounces a fowl's internal bit.

My kids joke with me about adding r's to words that do not have one. I guess I always say "idear" instead of idea. Oh well.

Another word that has different pronunciations is gnocchi.

I'm still not sure what I use... since this question has been posed, I'm confused now! LOL! I keep trying to catch myself off guard and figure out what I call these things!
