Ho do you pronounce de Vere in Edward de Vere?

Is it like dee where?


Roughly speaking, De as in 'dip', without the 'p'.

Vere to rhyme with 'beer'.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thank you.
Yes...but not the 'de' as 'di' part. He was the Earl of Oxford, so should have a British English pronunciation, no?

The 'de' should pronounced 'd-uh'...kind of like the 'du' in 'duck' [though more like 'd-uh' than anything].

A minor thing, but hope it helps!
de Vere = ryhmes with fur beer.
