EDIT BY MOD:

I'm tired of the "how do you pronounce X or Y" threads that keep spawning all over the forum. You are to use THIS thread to discuss all the different pronunciations you can find about a particular word. Do NOT start another thread because it will just be merged.



So far we've had:

QUOTE
Debut:

1) Day-byoo
2) Day-byoot

1 or 2? Haha or do you have another way of saying it?
I was looking through homework and realized that debut was
pronounced "daybyoo" so I thought that was pretty interesting

As for me I pronounce it # 2.


QUOTE
Crayons:

Do you guys say crayons as:

CRAY-ON'S (like the word ON, but plural with an S at the end)
or
CRAY-INS (eventually sounding like CRANES)
or (new addition from replies)
CROWNS/CRAWNS
I have no idea where you guys came up with this one.
or (new addition from replies)
CRAY-UNS
This one sounds like a mixture of the first and second one.
or (new addition from replies)
CRANS (like cranberries? lol)

?

edit//
Okay, it seems like tons of people don't get why some might pronounce it as CRAY-INS.
It's not exactly IN'S, but it's like saying the word BACON. You don't say BAKE-ON. You say BAKE-IN.
So that's probably why some people pronounce the ON part of crayONs as IN.

Well, unless you actually pronounce BACON as BAKE-ON...

Pho:

Most of my family members pronounce it like "fuuh", but my friend pronounces it like "foe" (another name for enemy) .

So how do you pronounce it?



QUOTE
Seoul
