Default How do you say cauliflower

No, it's a "correct" thing. At least my Webster's claims it is.

So what you are saying is, it is correct to say the "i" in cauliflower
as an short "e" like the "i" in broccoli, instead of the 'I' in the
word "ick"

When I look on the Pronunciation Key for the "i"
in cauliflower is different than the "i" in broccoli
My Websters dictionary says the same thing.

This is what I'm talking about is people who stress the "i" like the
"i" in broccoli. This is not correct.
