it's actually the "correct" way to say it.... as annoying as it is.

In Spain's Spanish, the S, C and Z have different pronounciations. Supposedly in Latin American Spanish, it should be the same way, but it isn't. So, in summary, the pronunciation of the letter "Z" is like "th".

It's a Castilian Spanish thing. They have a 6th verb conjugation as well, unlike Latin-American Spanish, which only has 5.
The difference between the Queen's English and the American vernacular.
We say cigarette, trunk and hood, they say , boot and bonnet.

Yeah, he needs to roll his tongue to make it sound more masculine.

+1. Supposedly it's because one the king have a lisp so he made everyone talk with a lisp. That's what my Spanish teacher from Spain said. Anyway the announcers are annoying, especially Scott Russell's redneck accent.

So you wanted to choke a person for going the extra mile to do his work properly?

Castillian Spanish also pronounces the double L and the y more like a J.

ex: "lluvia" sounds like "yuvia" in south america, but "juvia" in the castille.



I'm just not 100% sure that Lorenzo is from the region of Spain where this dialect is actually spoken (its not the whole country).

Guess the real question is how does Lorenzo pronounce his own name? And why, out of all the many commentators that do MotoGP (I watch Supersports overseas channel) is this one guy the only one that comes up with "tho"?

They tried way too hard to try and build suspense over which US rider would punch thru for the win, when everyone knows that there was only one with a chance.

I think if Lorenzo was 100% it wouldn't have gone down that way. Did you see how he got off the bike at the end? he looked miserable.
