How to Pronounce 'Luxury'

Online English Pronunciation Free Classes with Damilola. Do you want to avoid ambiguity when speaking & be understood in personal & work life? Work with me towards better pronunciation of English words by understanding where and how we produce sounds for accuracy. This week pronunciation titbit: Luxury. Many Nigerians in their conversational English pronounce this word as “lor-ki-zi-ry.” British articulate the word as “luksheri”/ /‘l˄k.∫ ᵊr.i/ and American pronunciation sound it as “lukshei” /‘l˄k.∫Əʳ.i/ making the “r” subtle. For easy articulation, I suggest you pronounce the word as “luksheri” And not “lor-ki-zi-ry.”
