    Pronounciations....

    Advertisements
    My brother and I are having a little debate about how to pronounce a few words

    (Obviously depending on where you're from, the pronounciations are going to vary )

    But I'm just curious...how do you pronounce jewelry and elementary?

    Jewelry: As in "jew la ry" or "jewl ry" or something completely different?

    Elementary: "El em n tree" or "El em n tary" or something completely different?


    I'm not bored or anything

    Jew-el-ry
    El-em-en-tree if talking about the school. El-em-en-ta-ry when talking about skill level. (I know, I am weird.)

    Hubby and I argue over words that have "pro" at the beginning of it.
    IE I say Pro gress
    He says Pra gress
