Subject: pronunciation: jewelry
I've always pronounced it as "jewl-er-ee," and occasionally wondered
why it's pronounced that way, but I've never heard any other pronunciation.
How do the rest of you pronounce "jewelry"?
New York, NY
JEWL-ry (two syllables), every time. But then I'm from Shuh-KAW-go, so
what can you expect?
