Ko-sovo, Pristina (as in Christina) and dass-tardly.
Steups! Get it right.
The country that has declared independence from Serbia is pronounced Kos-sovo, while the city is pronounced Prish-tina (that's for TV6's Natoya Johnson).

And for Sampson Nanton and Neil Beekhee of CNC 3, dass-tardly is not how you pronounce that word. The emphasis is supposed to be on the first syllable, as in das-tadly.
And anyway, why use that word on tv? Why not use cowardly or malicious, according to the context of the sentence?

And TV6 Morning Edition, the Labour Minister's name is spelt Rennie Dumas, not Rene Dumas.
