Pronunciation

The words which we see need not be pronounced in the same manner.There may be any alphabet silent or its quite possible that the entire word is pronounced in totally different manner..So the thread z dedicated to all those words that are pronounced differently.

Here i enter one from my side:

entrepreneur pronounced as an-tre-pre-neur

'Resume'

Interesting thread !

There's one more, 'Resume'. It is pronounced as 'Rey-sue-may' and not 'rey-sue-um' as lot of us do.

Note that the word is written as resumé .

Hope it helps 😀

"forte"

Yet another word - forte.

Lot of people pronounce it as for-tay. But the actual pronunciation is 'Fort'.

Forte is a French word meaning "strength".

Example: English is my forte. Note that this pronunciation is used when 'ability' is implied.

the Deutsche Bank ? ;-)

that's American's way of pronouncing 'Schedule'. You must have heard 'often' is pronounced as 'off-tan' while many pronounce it as 'off-un'.

Interestingly, not many of us knew that Deutsche is pronounced as 'Doi cha' or Doytch. 😀

Education

Lot of people pronounce 'education' as 'edge-yoo-cation'. I the correct way to pronounce is "ae-dew-kay-tion".

Pronunciation does not matter as long as the listener understands what you are saying 😉

me too...

well here 's another concept...

we generally pronounce words like comment as " ka-ment" and colleague as " ka-leeg"....
the correct way of pronouncing these words though is "kau-ment" and "kau-leeg"

so... any comments 😉 😉

Its "Róndi`voo"
Adding a little more light to it, "Rendezvous" is a french word meaning "Conversation". In french, "..vous" is pronounced as "...voo".
A similar french word is "Enchante" pronounced as "Enshaunt" and it means "Celebration".
