So am I the only one who doesn't think of "deal" as a one-syllable word?
We definitely agreed with you at my house, especially when Alex clearly pronounced it with two syllables.

I remember marveling in my younger days about the ability of Southern Baptist preachers to pronounce many one-syllable words with three.

"Free-ends-uh, we are gathered today...."

Reverend Lovejoy on the "The Simpsons" nails the cadence.
