How do you pronounce...

Recommended Posts


Pronounce vai as va of value.

sh is similar to sh of she but a little different. The difference is that while pronouncing sh in vaishava, you should touch upper part of inside of your mouth with your tongue and keep tongue slightly curled backward.


na of vaishnava should be pronounced similar to the way na is usually pronounced ending in vowel a (a here is pronounced like a of abode), but keep tongue's position the way you keep while pronouncing sh in vaishnava.


The last va is pronounced like normal v sound; end it in vowel a sound (again a is like a of abode).


Note:- Hindi speaking people do not pronounce the last vowel a sound. Not only Hindi speaking people, majority of people (including English speaking) do not pronounce the last vowel a sound in a word.
