How do you pronounce "Dior Addict"?

Is it "ad-ikt" or "uh-dikt"?

How do you pronounce "Bourjois"?

Thank you!

Like you would say in English, no? Ad-ict. "Uh-dict" sounds like you have a foreign accent.

As for "Guerlain," I treat it like a French word. "Guerre-lein."

Ad-ict is a noun

Uh-dict is a verb (like addicted)

I couldn't figure out whether it's a noun or verb....

I'm pretty sure addict's a noun, sonya. :yes: So, ad-dict.

I agree that the nearest you can spell Bourjoir phonetically is Boor-jwah.

Guerlain is gurr-lan, I think. Like salle de bain is sal de ban.
