Pronounce "cucumber"

What if we were to throw up every time we fail to pronounce some kinds of food correctly? Let's thank God the taste of food is not synonymous to how we pronounce them. Hehehe . . . 

Words With Amaka


Lesson 6
Word of the Day: cucumber

Meaning: the fruit of a vine (Cucumis sativus) of the gourd family cultivated as a garden vegetable

Pronunciation: (I'm not sure I remember how I used to pronounce the word wrongly. The right pronunciation has taken over.)

Cucumber = \ˈkju:-kəm-bər\

Listen below:



Side joke: When you pronounce this way to one 'Iya Bola' who sells cucumber at your nearest local market. She might just say she doesn't have that type.
