How to pronounce GYRO in American English.
We’re going to get controversial today.
How do you pronounce this word? The internet is full of different ideas.
Okay, if we’re talking about for example “Gyroscope”, there’s just one pronunciation: dʒaɪ.roʊ.
But what about this?
Cambridge dictionary says it’s pronounced jɪr.oʊ but when you press the speaker, she says ‘jahy-roh
Dictionary.com says ‘yē-ˌrō or jahy-roh
Merriam Webster says ‘yē-ˌrō or ‘zhir-ō
Macmillan says ˈdʒaɪroʊ
Looks like a couple of different pronunciations are acceptable but I want to know how do you pronounce it.
