Jess A Query: pronunciation of 'Tow' (26) Query: pronunciation of 'Tow' 12 Nov 04

Hiya, I was involved in a discussion a while back about the correct way to pronounce the word 'tow' and came across this thread today which made me think about it again. I'm talking about tow as in the material used to make fibre, similar to hemp or flax.

My initial instinct was to pronounce it to rhyme with 'toe' (i.e. on the end of your foot) but I have been told that it should be pronounced to rhyme with 'cow'. I'm in the UK if that makes any difference...
