  5. Pronunciation of "lee".


Pronunciation of "lee".

I am having a hard time distinguishing the recording voice, how is "lee" pronounced?

Is "lee" pronounced as "Lee", or "Lee-E"? That is as one vowel or two vowels?

And is it the same for "lees" too?

Mucho gracias.

Rough phonetic translation. Le = Leh Lee = Leh-eh Lees = Leh-ehs


I found this site helpful for questions like these too: http://www.cliffsnotes.com/study_guide/topicArticleId-250661,articleId-250507.html

Check out the last paragraph where they discuss how to pronounce words with vowels next to each other.
