You say that like the english language isn't full of words that sound different then they are spelled.
laugh out loud I was actually thinking of the phrase "coup dtat" or "coup de grce". I hope people don't say those with the "queue" pronunciation. Bigeye

Now I'm wondering is this another regional dialect thing like "soda" vs "pop"?

We should all post how we say it and where we're from laugh out loud

I'm from California and I say "q-pon"

You "q-pon" people are obviously wrong since no other word with "cou" is pronounced with a "q" sound.



I hope no one finds such a word.

i definitely say koo-pahn but would be very interested to hear someone say it the other way (q-pahn). i think it would sound weird. i wonder if its a dialectal thing
