Hi,

I often pronounce it as cray-un (u rhymes a in about).
Is that right?

I become uncertain, because I heard it pronounced as "cray-on" (the same on in "on the table").

Is that American or British way?

Thank you.

Hello,


According to wikipedia:

A crayon (ˈkreɪ.ɒn/, /ˈkreɪ.ən/, or US /ˈkræn/)

According to dictionary.com:

Cray.on [krey-on, -uhn]

Thank you.
I would like to know how the people in your region (for example, California ) pronounce it.
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies
I can only speak in what regards of what we learn in Portugal.
We learn on pronouncing as [krey-on].

There are several variations in its pronunciation depending on region and/or country.
