Post subject:  The "How do You Pronounce X" Thread

Following the massive amount of replies the "How do you pronounce Wikipedia" thread got, and the fact that I have such a question as well, I decided to start a thread for this kind of questions. If you wonder how others pronounce something, you can post your question here, and I'll add it to the OP.

So, my question is: How do you pronounce "closer"?


1. How do you pronounce "closer"?
2. How do you pronounce "cuneiform"?
3. How do you pronounce hair, her and heir?
4. How do you pronounce
factory
factorial
century
centurion
victory
victorious
restaurant
restauranteur
history
historical
mystery
mysterious
interest
interesting
interestingly
?
5. How do you pronounce "plosive"?

I'd try to say [ˈkl̥əʊ̯.sə]. I also like to convince myself I in fact get very close to that.
I'd like to know how you pronounce cuneiform. If I'm correct British English has something like /ˈkjuːnɪfɔːm/ and Am E /ˈkjuːniːəfɔrm/... Is that recognisable?

Closer is two separate words: close[adj]+COMP → /klosər/ [kʰɫ̥oʊsɚ]; close[vb]+AGT → /klozər/ [kʰɫ̥o:zɚ]

Cuneiform → /ˈkjunifɔrm/ [ˈcçynifɔɻm]

/klos@r/ if the adjective, /kloz@r/ if the agentive noun.

I say /kju"ni.@form/ with the full four syllables: cue-KNEE-a-form.

Closer as in nearer is [ˈkʰʟ̞os̻ʁ̩ˤ(ː)]~[ˈkʰɰos̻ʁ̩ˤ(ː)]
Closer as in a baseball pitcher is [ˈkʰʟ̞oːz̻ʁ̩ˤ(ː)]~[ˈkʰɰoːz̻ʁ̩ˤ(ː)]
Cuneiform is [ˈk̟ʰj̠ũː(n)iˌfɔ(ː)ʁˤm]

cuneiform as either /kjunɪfɔːm/ to rhyme with uniform or /kunɪfɔːm/ to rhyme with, uhh, soon-i-form.

How do you pronounce hair, her and heir?

Author:  finlay [ Sun Jun 26, 2011 4:27 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: The "How do You Pronounce X" Thread

/heər/, /hər/ and /eər/. You're not going to find an awful lot of variation in this one unless a) you're looking at more precise phonetics or b) you're looking at h-dropping, blur/blair-merging dialects from places like merseyside. But this is all the same variation that you'd find between the dialects anyway; I don't think any dialect changes the sort of basic phonemic set of any of these words. The only thing worth noting is that I don't know of a dialect in the world that can't drop the /h/ in "her" in unstressed position; unlike the /h/ in "hair". And it's possible that people have /h/ in "heir" as a spelling pronunciation.

As for more precise phonetics... um [heːɚ], [hɚ(ː)] or [ə], [eːɚ] (at least prototypically – I think I often have [ɛːɻ])

[hɛːɻ] for both hair and heir
[hʊr] for her

1. How do you pronounce "closer"?

[kʰɫoʊsɚ] or [kʰɫoʊzɚ], depending on what meaning of "closer" you mean.

2. How do you pronounce "cuneiform"?

[ˈkʰjuːnɪfoɹm] (rhymes with uniform)

3. How do you pronounce hair, her and heir?

[hɛɚ], [hɚ], [ɛɚ]/[hɛɚ]
