Yeah, I think that's actually how I say it. And I usually change it up for pie to be exciting.

If I'm talking about pecans themselves, I say puh-CAHN, but if I'm talking about pie, I say PEE-can, just because I think it sounds funny (but only when talking about pie).

Yeah how DO you say Daiya? I say "day-uh" but I've heard people say "die-uh".

I say "tem-pay" and "SAY-tan" for the others.


Also I'm glad someone mentioned worchestershire ... being away from Massachusetts, nobody knows how to pronounce it. They think I'm crazy when I insist it's "wooster" but I say the sauce more like "woosta-sheer". People out here like to try to say it like it's spelled and it sounds sooooo dumb.

A lot of these really depend on where you grew up. I'm from CA, so I have a west-coast generic accent... and I love hearing how people from other parts of the country (or world) pronounce things. :)

I say:

pecan = peh-CAHN

worcestershire = woorsh-ter-sher

almond = AHL-mund

Daiya = DIE-yuh

seitan = SAY-tan (although I do think I mispronounce this one and it probably should be say-TAN)

tempeh = TEM-pay

I'm still not sure on celeriac -- is it sell-AIR-ee-ack?

Don't ask me how, because I have no idea. Everyone points it out to me.

See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9CYxnblss0 to hear me say bagel about 351 times.

Heeee! So cute.

It reminded me of this episode of Community....you are not alone.

Send them straight to me! I watched that about 10 times because it's so awesome. And now I can pronounce stuff.

I also don't don't pronounce the 'L' in almond Antlers.

Yes you are so cute, we love you. <3

How do you say Muesli? I'm pretty sure I've been saying it wrong, same with demerara.

Do you pronounce caramel, CAR-a-mel or CARE-a-mel?

I say "CARmel" most of the time, because that's how I grew up saying it, so "care-a-mel" sounds so snooty (even though I'm pretty sure that's the right way). Whenever I do say it now, I try to say "care-a-mel," but really fast, so people maybe won't notice how I've said it.

i'm glad i speak the languages i do, since about 85% of all the questionable pronunciation falls under them.....
Acai screws many people up because the word is actually açaí (accent indicating stress and 2nd syllable, and the ç is an "s" sound) but most folks don't have the ç on their computers, so it becomes acai. Understandable, really.

I am not naming any names but there is a certain person who insists on pronouncing "Lecithin" as "Lethicin" in certain public forums. To the point where i seriously considered writing her a letter, but decided to simply not listen to her podcasts anymore.

The good thing about Japanese is that it's very easy to pronounce once you know the syllables. I'd say you are pronouncing it properly, 'pan-ko', I guess it's a bit difficult cos it's not really 'pan' as in cooking pan, maybe a bit more like pahn-koh.
