Yeah, that's what other Bloopers have said, that they simply don't pronounce the 'u'. I wanna hear it though - vids and voice recordings about menstruation and ovulation should be created for my entertainment! ;D Do you guys say 'ovlation' too? What about words like 'fluctuate' - do you say 'fluctate'? And does 'graduation' become 'gradation'? Or is it simply the presence of an 'r' before a vowel that makes the word lose a syllable - like how 'squirrel' becomes 'squirl'? Americans - post your vids about graduating squirrels with fluctuating menstruation here!
