the french cannot/do not pronounce 'th'...it always comes out 't'...

Thujone is pronounced Thoo-Jone. Jone rhymes with Joan.

The (French) Thuyone, I suppose is Thoo-Yone. Yone also rhymes with Joan.

As for the correct pronounciation of Deva, it's Day-va, more or less. The Spanish 'e' is a more subtle sound than 'ay' though - 'ay' in Spanish would be written 'ei', so 'e' is more like 'ay' with the end cut off.

thats good to know i have been pronounceing it just the way its spelled,thank you as i have been wondering this ever since i first saw the word

Absinthe is pronounced the way it's written. It's an English word. Pronouncing it the French way is unnecessary and pretentious. In French it's pronounced ahb-SANT. At least that's the closest I can get to the pronunciation with English sounds.

By _blackjack_ on Monday, November 13, 2000 - 10:14 am: Edit

In French, it's ahb-SAHNT, but most folks I know just say AB-sinth.

How do you pronoune "thujone"?

By Chrysippvs on Monday, November 13, 2000 - 10:05 am: Edit

In English it is like "ab-sinthe" in French it is somewhat like "ahb-sant".

By Joshua on Monday, November 13, 2000 - 09:53 am: Edit

not to sound like a complete moron,but how exactly is absinthe pronounced?

By Chrysippvs on Saturday, November 11, 2000 - 12:05 pm: Edit

I have heard it both as "dee-vah" and "Dehva"

By Midas on Saturday, November 11, 2000 - 07:31 am: Edit

I pronounce it as Day-va, as opposed to Dee-va, but I have no idea what the proper pronunciation is.

I pronounce it as though I were talking about a female singer. Have no idea how other people say it.

What is the proper pronounciation of the word DEVA. It appears to be initials for the distillary. Would it be "dev-VA"?

Was watching some movie last night called Capitain Conan, and about 10 minutes into the flick, one officer says to another...I have the runs... the other says have you tried the Pernod? This movie was set during WW1 I think.
In the Tom Hanks movie Saving Private Ryan there is a scene with a Pernod Manufacturing Plant.

just useless info...

as in book or in lou

That would depend entirely upon how you think "book" is pronounced. Like I pronounce it, no. Look Ringo Starr pronounces it, yes.

You spelled it right, and the correct pronunciation is "loosh".

By Eleusis on Thursday, November 09, 2000 - 01:34 pm: Edit

What is the proper pronunciation of the word "louche" did I spell it right?
