    Is it Fore Head or is Forrid?

    Or something else.

      Fore Head = normal

      Forrid = posh or regional accent

      Something else for me.

      Forr-ed as opposed to Forrid!!

      Funnily enough, I've been thinking about this recently as I keep hearing it pronounced four-head. It sounds very strange to me as well as being a nonsensical pronunciation.

      Perhaps one of the weirdos who says 'four-head' could explain how this rhyme would make sense

      There was a little girl,
      Who had a little curl,
      Right in the middle of her forehead.
      When she was good,
      She was very good indeed,
      But when she was bad she was horrid.

      Forred according to Cambridge Dictionary

      Forrid/forred announcers probably also exclaim 'tuth' instead of 'tooth'.

      Edited the penultimate line.

      My maths teacher said that rhyme was written for me!!
