Vu-vu-ze-la [pronounced: /vuːvuːˈzɛlə/]

noun (plural vu-vu-ze-las)


1. plastic horn: typically a 65cm plastic blowing horn that produces a loud, distinctive monotone note around B♭3 (the B♭ below middle C). Originating from South Africa, it is used at major sports events.

Guys, get it right. It's not a "vuvuzuela" or "bubuzela" or whatever it has been called in the past month around the world. It's not from Venezuela, so no need to stick "zuela" at the end. OK?
