Is it "Downton" or "Downtown" Abbey?

Do you know how much self-control I exhibited to not correct my MIL when she said "downtown abbey." EVERY DROP OF SELF CONTROL IN THE UNIVERSE! Of course, my 5 year old had already told her that I hated her dogs. True story.


Speaking of mothers driving one crazy with odd pronunciations my mom won't pronounce Home Depot correctly. She says depp-o, like Johnny Depp's last name with an O at the end.






As for Downton, when I firs started seeing it here I was reading it as Downtown. Now I'm wondering if that wasn't how it was typed out.
