pronounce

 

The word of the day, "pronounce," is a verb that we use to describe the sound that your mouth makes when speaking:

  • Yang pronounces some words very clearly, but she has trouble with words that begin with the "z" sound.
  • Hans pronounces "th" sounds incorrectly, but he's getting better at it.
  • Do you know how to pronounce long words in English?
  • Many words in English are not pronounced the way that they are spelled.

Sometimes the word "pronounce" is used when an official declaration is made:

  • I now pronounce you man and wife. (A minister made the pronouncement.*)
  • The man was pronounced dead when he arrived at the hospital. (A doctor made the pronouncement.)
  • A jury pronounced that the suspect was guilty of his crimes.

This is what the word looks like as a noun:
