In summary, the correct pronunciation of "neutrino" is "noo-tree-noh". The correct pronunciation of "muon" is "myoo-on". The "e" in "electron" should be pronounced as "eh-lek-tron". The proper way to say "photon" is "foh-tahn". Not all particle names follow the same pronunciation rules and it is best to consult a reliable source for the correct pronunciation.
