I have a friend Marcia that's pronounced Mar-cee-ya. Is there a way to tell Siri this?
Siri is a girl with attitude. I highly doubt she'll agree to change from the conventional pronunciation, which is mar-sha.
You could try though, but it'll take a lot of begging.
It's a case in point .. generally speaking, can you do it?
On a more serious note,
I don't think it's possible with Siri 1.0.
Although Siri 1.1 could bring such possibility.
Send Apple a feature request.
There are several reports around this forum of Siri altering pronunciation over time but how it occurs is unknown at this point.
I have a friend, "Raquel", with whom I text and email.
The first few times Siri referred to her as something that sounded almost like "Raccoon". After a few hours, the pronunciation was correct, although I don't know how "she" did it. Maybe she was jealous at first until she realized I was communicating about work issues?
