fiat, there should actually be an acute accent mark on the last e of matelasse. So, the pronunciation would be mat-leh-SEH.

trama and fromparis, where are you ladies?! Perhaps you would like to chime in? If memory serves this old lady right, I think that our French-speaking ladies might've discussed this once before... :smile:
I know this is an old thread but it was bumped up recently and I just had to google this.
Apparently, pronunciation of Matelasse is (må`lå`sã´). Someone please correct if this is wrong. It sounds very strange to me! (and I would really like to know because I want one!)
