According to Google Analytics, a lot of people arrive at my site by searching for a pronunciation of ‘foie gras’ (the French term for duck liver, which is used as a fancy hors d’oeuvre (usually)). So, if you arrive at my site because you are searching for a pronunciation of this term, this is for you. In the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) [fwa gʀɑ] Or with an American English (from upstate NY) phonetic: fwah grah. The r in gras, is the throaty/gutteral R in French, kind of like the j in Spanish or an h in several languages. To hear it pronounced, go to Google Translate, search ‘foie gras’ in English -> French and press the listen button.

There you go!

Now I’ve done you a favor, you can do me one. Look at some other stuff on my site! 🙂
