Have you been pronouncing any of these food names incorrectly without realizing it?
peony I always pronounced 10 wrong. Hahaha. Thanks for the insight.
Courrtneyy Açaí is pronounced ah-sigh-ee!!! Not ah-sigh!
sarife08 It's ke-sa-di-ya actually.
Bella I'm Greek and the t's in tzatziki are actually pronounced
Owl I know I say the Spanish wine Rioja wrong. How would you break it down?
Purpleish Bruschetta ... I really thought it was like Schmidt, Bru- shetta.... Funny...!
Mabelle @Purpleish, I have been pronouncing it wrong all this time. The words can be forgiven except for espresso ofcourse.
Anna As long as you don't say "expresso" all else can be forgiven
Emmanuelle I'm French and this is so funny how they wrote the words! I love the way English speakers talk!
ReneeK Nope, I know how to say all of those. I like to tease people who pronounce bruschetta with the ch as in "cheese" sound. It's an Italian word. To have the ch sound it would be spelled bruscetta, no h.
Rebecca Some of these are a little off. Like if you said it exactly as it was written here you would be wrong
Flowersuponcrowns I say these correctly! But I can see how this would be helpful for others.
Lara I guess if you are saying some of these with an American accent then the pronunciation here would be correct.
Jeni Yay! I've been saying them all correctly! Another that almost everyone pronounces incorrectly is Gyro, it's NOT J-eye-ro!!!!
Lisa Feel like these names are way easier to pronounce if you're German.
Lily I don't even know what half these things are!!
