I usually pronounce it "gloss-ter", using the same rule as Worcestershire (worster-sher), but I'm curious to know if this is a commonly mispronounced word, and if I'm using it wrong, lol.
My mother was British and I did spend some time there. She spoke with a heavy British accent, some of which I have picked up, and I do remember her saying these words. "Gloucester" was pronouned "Glow-stir" with the "ow" sounding like "ow" as in "ouch." "Worcestershire" was pronounced "Woo-stir-shire" with the "i" in "shire" soumding more like the "y" in "dyke." I hope that helps.
My mother was British (now deceased) and she always pronounced that "Glow-stir" with the "ow" sounding as in "ow, that hurts." Worcestershire" was pronounced "Woo-stir-sheer" and so on. Hope that helps.
