is it click as in click the mouse. or CL-EEK and in rhyms with peek.
It's the former.
I wonder how you'd pronounce my name then Monick?
In the US, we pronounce clique as click. (We still pronounce Monique as Moneek, unless you tell us it should be otherwise. ) Apparently, it is pronounced as cleek in other places.
'Cleek', definitely. It has an "ique" in it! It's got to be "eek"y, just like Monique, oblique and, urm, chic.
And boutique too. And antique.
And sique, mique, tique, bique, frique, chique, lique, rique and blique.
Not to forget piquant. :tongue2:
chique, boutique, ludique, magnifique, mythique, laconique, critique, antique
how about plain "ique"
'Cleek', for sure. I cringe when I hear people pronounce it 'click'. Makes me want to ask if they're American... : smile :
The noise Moonbear makes when you step on her toes?
Click fo sho. All you non-United Statians and your weird pronunciations
Hmm, I went to answers.com to prove my case, thinking that they would have the US pronunciation, and they did not
They probably don't have that spelling of 'pronunciation' either. :tongue:
rofl, you are probably correct. What is wrong with doing that, is that not the british spelling?
No, it is not; nor the Yank spelling for that matter. It is uniquely (pronounced 'you-neek-ly') your own.
Apparently either are acceptable: http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=clique
I'm sticking with the one that rhymes with Monique (rather than Monick)
So how do you pronounce
After you've heard me pronounce 'picturesque', you really won't want to know...
All of the references listed in that site are US published, including that ridiculous American Heritage thing, so your choice is the correct one.
Now that we've covered pronunciation and spelling, wanna take a shot at the grammar of 'either are acceptable'? :tongue:
No, that rhymes with "duck." :tongue2:
Unless we start pronouncing Monique as Monicka.
Separate names with a comma.
