A how do YOU pronounce it thread


#21

I didn’t for ages. Then my wife said it when we were cooking, and I clocked it. But are you meant to pronounce it!? I can’t find a definitive answer.

  • Envelope, because that’s how it’s spelt and why wouldn’t you?
  • Onvelope, because you’re deeply odd.

The OED has it down as

/ˈtəːmərɪk/

Which is t-er-m-a-r-i-k

With the ‘er’ pronounced as in her.

So yes, the R should be pronounced.

I think you’ll find it’s actually pronounced ter-ma-rik, as per my OED findings above.

Yes, a London accent really is the hardest to understand.
