ehks pose aye
exposé |ˌekspōˈzā| |ˈˈɛksˈpoʊˈˈzeɪ| |ˈˈɛkspəˈˈzeɪ| |ɪkˈspəʊzeɪ|
Expozay. Rhymes with Tay Zonday.
Yeah, it's not "ei" at the end, but "e".
Notice the accent on the e. Makes it sound like ei (or ay). The s is like a z.
It's an acute e, like in Spanish. Not an e + i.
No, it's an "ay" sound.
If "ay" sounds like "Eh!", that is OK.
Its a French word. Like in flambé.
I know it's a French word. I am just telling you the French acute e sounds like the Spanish e.
Imagine a Canadian saying "expose"
Yes they both do. But so does e+i. Like in weight or freight. Unfortunately, the English language can also pronounce e+i like a long i as in height but that is the convention used in dictionaries for pronunciation.
There's an "i" sound also in freight and height. It's not just a phonetic e.
1 goods transported by truck, train, ship, or aircraft.
• the transport of goods by truck, train, ship, or aircraft.
• a charge for such transport.
2 (in full freight train) a train of freight cars : sugar and molasses moving by freight.
3 a load or burden.
There is no "i" sound in freight. You might be thinking of fright
1 a sudden intense feeling of fear : I jumped up in fright.
• an experience that causes one to feel sudden intense fear : she's had a nasty fright | I got the fright of my life seeing that woman in the hotel.
2 a person or thing looking grotesque or ridiculous.
"i" phonetic sound. not English "I" sound.
There's such a sound in freight. It doensn't sound like "fregt" (phonetic e).
Just like OS X:
If, after all this, you're still confused Here's how the man himself pronounces it!
So, just because SJ promounces Exposé like an American we are supposed to destroy the French language?
well lets go to the trusty Terminal ey? type this in and youll get the correct pronunciation (to get an accented 'e' type "option+e+ then "e")
errr... hang on, thats not right! i dont think Apple have coded in the correct sound for Exposé like they have with "Mac OS X" and "iPod" etc.
heres the correct pronunciation. although you need a premium account to hear it the pronunciation, the one in brackets is justifiable enough.
