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.
