How Do You Pronounce ...

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:

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.

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?

Seoul

lol, so many people i know have a hard time pronouncing it right including me of course. So how do you pronounce the city?

Three

I mean, I've noticed quite a few people say something like 'free' instead of THree.

Random I knoww. But anyway,

How do you say the number 3 ?

Adult

So yea I know lots of people say it differently, soooo i was wondering how my fellow soompiers pronounce it?

I've heard...

Add-uhlt

Uhdult

Ayye-dult?

I say Uhdult. =____=

time, I say day-byoot. Dunno why, I've always heard it that way o_o

lmao yeah i'm filipino so it's really funny esp. when some even say it as de-boot.

"Ana, kailan ba ang de-boot mo?"

trans: "Ana, when is your debut?"

but for the urbanized they say it with a silent t at the end.

I have never heard anyone say it the 2nd way O_O...

If you say it the 2nd way, how would you say the word in the past tense?

Day-byoot-ed? ._.?
