The town of Derby in England is traditionally pronounced with a first syllable that rhymes with 'car': 'DAHr-bee', IPA: /'dɑːr bɪ/. This is not always the pronunciation used by the inhabitants of the town, and it is rare in American English, where the standard pronunciation rhymes the first syllable with 'herb' and 'kerb': 'DUHr-bee', IPA: /'dɜːːr bɪ/. This applies to the town, the county, the aristocratic title (the Earl of Derby), the famous horse-race (which was founded by the 12th Earl of Derby) and various other derivatives. Americans talk of a 'derby hat', worn by men, which is not a name used in Britain. The British name is a bowler hat, or, colloquially, a bowler.
