How to pronounce query

One word that people ask me about at least once a week is QUERY.

Follow these four steps to pronounce the word QUERY clearly and correctly.

QUERY  (2 syllables)

Step 1. Say the letters QU with a rounded /kw/ sound. Really round that sound!

Step 2. Say the E with a nice long /iy/ as in Green sound.

Step 3. Say the Y with a shorter /iy/ as in Green sound.

This is how I spell QUERY for my coaching clients.

  • KWEER ree
