P, why do many Americans spell/pronounce voila as walla? Was the mispronounciation a catchphrase used in cartoons, perhaps?

Do you mean as in a magician saying, "Abacadabbra... VOILA!"? It's supposed to be "vwalla" but the v is so gutteral it's almost not there. Listen to the pronounciations here. You can barely catch the V.

It's a plosive actually. Nothing guttural about it. The v is pronounced but the French get off of it very quickly. It's like saying moi (m-wa), except with a v.

I have often seen it spelled 'viola' Always wondered whether they thought it referred to the plant or the musical instrument?? And what did either one have to do with anything? Or did they even think........ Emilie

"Walla" can be explained as follows.
If we (Americans) were to approximate the real word "voila", we could write "v-walla", so they're just leaving off the "v".
Vive la difference!

Its always made me think that they thought they were writing it the way it would sound if it was a latin word. [at least the way I was taught to speak latin] I've never heard anyone pronounce it that way. [lived in Northeast US most of life]

Cute kids but they were wrong. It's pronounced "bow-coo" with the same em-pha-sis on each syl-a-bleh, Saint Cloud, ball-de match;>)
