This Canadian says "Key" but I'm still stumbling over the correct pronounciation of "Ambergris". Before I'd ever heard of Belize, I'd heard of ambergris, a whale byproduct used in the making of perfume. Pronounced "amber gree" but as I understand it . . . Ambergris Caye, is pronounced with a soft I and the S at the end. In other words the "gris" rhymes with "miss". Do I have it right?
A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

I say Seashell, you've got it! You've got it!

It is pronounced "key" or "kee" and spelled Caye in Belize. It is pronounced "kay" and spelled Cay in The Bahamas.

I think it's a British thing, and they only have about 74 different dialects and accents. Let's face it, they made lots of strange changes in the Caribbean and the Americas.

I also am led to believe that there is an "Ambergris Island" in the Turks & Caicos Islands.

And Canadians say "Eh" not A. Also from the British dialects.

I'm sure it's all as clear as mud.
