Reader Comment – “That’s great about the “s” but what about the rest of the word? The “s” was the least of my worries when looking at the jumble of c’s, q’s ue’s, and yr’s.” – Grace
Well, Grace has a point.
In my last post I wrote about how the “s” in “vacqueyras” is not silent.
I neglected, though, to give an adequate explanation of how the entire word is pronounced. That’s kind of like telling someone “hey, the “g” in “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” is soft” and leaving it at that.
So please forgive me Grace and here, just for you, is the proper way to pronounce “vacqueyras”.
va-(as in va-cuum) * cquey-(as in ke-boom)* ras-(as in Ras-tafarian)
