Hi there,

Shall I pronounce royale as royal in Casino Royale? Is the pronunciation for royale and royal same?

Sincerely,

no, it's not the same.

Roy-al (the al to sound the same as in 'pal') with the stress firmly on the 'al'.

I would say it the same as Nona does. It rhymes with "coy gal", stress on "gal".

I pronounce "royal" as [ r\oI@l ] and "royale" as something like [r\oIjaUl] .
Hi there,

Marvin said, ''I pronounce "royal" as [ r\oI@l ] and "royale" as something like [r\oIjaUl]''.

But I can't figure out what exactly [ r\oI@l ] and [r\oIjaUl] mean? I mean to say I couldn't figure out the pronunciation represented by [ r\oI@l ] and [r\oIjaUl].

Sincerely,

vijay

I pronounce them differently as well. The 'roy' part at the beginning is the same but when I say 'royal,' the tip of my tongue taps against the soft flesh right behind my front teeth at the end; it does the same thing when I say: mall, fall, ball. When I say 'royale,' the flat of my tongue presses against the bottom of my front teeth at the end; it does the same thing when I say: Powel, owl, scowl.

Can you pronounce only casino Royale in English?
