Say What?!

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

Any designer who's secretly wondered how to pronounce Moschino now has the answer. Pronunciation Book is an elegant pronunciation guide that's been making the internet rounds, and it's surprisingly chock-full of sticky wicket design terms. Functioning as a sleek YouTube channel, the book doubles as a refresher course in speech, and its selection of words make for a helpful, albeit humorous, compilation.

But think before you speak. You just might confuse the official book with Pronunciation Manual, the spoofy-spinoff with hilariously incorrect ways of saying everything from Bauhaus to moleskine.

Often both channels list the same word, increasing your chance of making one big faux-pas. At least native and non-native English speakers can rejoice together — with both channels around, consider the pronunciation playing field leveled.
