DON’T SAY IT IF YOU AREN’T SURE HOW TO PRONOUNCE IT.
Don’t just know the meaning of a name, word, or phrase. Take the extra step of researching its correct pronunciation.
Your listeners may never correct you, but you will come down a notch in their estimation if you mispronounce names, words, foreign phrases, and the like.
Watching network news or listening to National Public Radio, all of which have fact-checkers and pronunciation- checkers, or doing an Internet search by typing in the search word, followed by “pronunciation,” ensures that won’t sabotage yourself when you say it.
