I also used to pronounce Laos as 'Lay-oss', but that was wrong I guess
So, pre-Brexit one could futiley argue Maine belonged on the list more than Wales.
Also, Laos is pronounced "louse."
"The governments of the United Kingdom and of Wales almost invariably define Wales as a country. The Welsh Government says: "Wales is not a Principality. Although we are joined with England by land, and we are part of Great Britain, Wales is a country in its own right.""
Is Wales a distinct region? Yes
Is Wales a country? No
(for me it was a lightbulb moment when I got france, then I got greece and spain fairly easy. Before that I was kind of stuck, couldnt think of any other besides chad and laos. Guess I (un)consciously sort of disregarded europe initialy)
/ˈlaʊs/, /ˈlɑː.ɒs/, /ˈlɑː.oʊs/, or /ˈleɪ.ɒs/
ˈlau̇s, ˈlä-(ˌ)ōs, ˈlā-ˌäs is what I found. So some do pronounce it as one, but many don't. I would exclude it for that reason
finished in 10 seconds
How is this one syllable?
