I don't mean to double post but I forgot to quote this. The change in pronunciation with the word "vase" is due to British VS American pronunciation, I do believe. E
ven though we have the same words that mean the same thing, we pronounce them differently on occasions such as with the word "aluminum." Americans say AH-LOO-MIN-UM while the British say "AH-LOO-MIN-EE-UM," which is a cultural difference. On that note, British people also pronounce "tuna" as "chuna," which I find strange. I do not believe that plakats fall into this category, though.
