#3739: Manbo/anbago : Grey comments


<< I first discovered this with 
 our song "Ambargo" which someone eventually corrected to "Anbago". 
 The "m" was coverted to an "n"(nasal) and the "r" was dropped as is 
 common in creole. In English, "embargo" has the "m". "Mambo" would 
 sound phonetically correct to someone who wasn't native to the 
 nasal "n" sound.

"Mambo" IS phonetically correct.  Anbago is phonetically correct.  Mambo and 
anbago do not have the same pronunciation in the relevant parts of the words.

Peace and love,
