It's pronounced "ver-nee" and amarante is pronounced "ah-ma-rant." I hope that makes sense.

With French, you don't pronounce the last letter in the word.

Actually, I'd pronunce Amarante more like ah-ma-ront, not ah-ma-rant, because the "a" in French has a rounder sound...as opposed to "a" in English as in uhhh...flat. If you were to say flat with French accent, it'd sound more like "flot"...Sorry, it's hard to explain! And, try to roll your tongue saying "ront" so it is smooth, not distinctly ma and ront. Hope that makes sense!
