how to say "pastilles?"

  1. how in the heck do you pronounce pastilles?

    I feel so stupid when I don't know how to say things properly:sad:
     
  2. pas-tee

    the L's are silent/suppressed
     
  3. Oopsie... I've been saying it "puh-stills". :p
     
  4. Lol my SA and I always say it as "PAS-TEEL." We know what we're talking about lol, except when she leaves me a message she always says Louis Vuitton with just a hint of an "n" at the end of Vuitton.
     
  5. I pronounce it as "pas-teel" also :shrugs:
     
  6. ^^ Nope - it's pass-tee (silent L's and silent last S) :winkiss:
     
  7. ^Good to know! :supacool:
     
  8. that's what i was about to say... LOL :yes:
     
  9. Lol that's hilarious..I haven't heard one person in my store say it right, except for the one SA who's French! :lol:
     
  10. I was wondering how to pronounce it too. Thanks guys!
     
  11. good to know! i've been pronouncing it Pah-Still.. WAY OFF! :shame:
     
  12. so how do you say Vuitton???
     
  13. Vweeton (as in ton not tun) - the n is soft too.
     
  14. You don't pronounce the n. As lvbabydoll said: "except when she leaves me a message she always says Louis Vuitton with just a hint of an "n" at the end of Vuitton.".
     
  15. I speak French, and I'd say it in between making the L at the end and not making it (symbolized by 'l' below)........
    Also if you're speaking European French, its: Pahs-Tee'l'
    If you speak Quebec Canadian French, it's: Pahs-Tsee'l'

    Stress on 2nd syllable for both
