A citrus fruit the is round and orange in color. Sometimes it is a bonus prize together in the Pac-Man collection of games. Additionally comes in the kind of juice and also soda.

You are watching: How many syllables are in orange



I newly disagreed v my sister around how numerous syllables room in the word “orange.” I said one, she claimed two, so ns looked it increase in the dictionary. At first I believed she to be right, due to the fact that the entrance in bold was or·ange. However, I review the explanatory notes in the beginning of the dictionary, and also they said that the entry word just shows exactly how the word is hyphenated, no necessarily how many syllables are in it. 

Then i looked at the pronunciation. There are six ways.

Pronunciation: \är-inj, är(-ə)nj; chiefly northern & Midland ȯr-inj, ȯr(-ə)nj\

How space there six? Well, the (-ə) is express by some people, yet omitted by others. So the answer is orange have the right to have one or two syllables. Ns pronounce the /ȯrnj/.

Heh, now after analysis this i can"t protect against playing through different pronounciations of "orange" in mine mind .  I express it through 2-syllables. I would certainly tell you just how I express it, however I"ve never really to be able to occupational out the voice alphabet, yet it"s something prefer "orrinj".

I provided the dorn word. Instead of speak "hyphenated," i should"ve said the entry word in the dictionary had one "end-of-line division" in between "or" and "ange." End-of-line divisions and also pronunciations don"t always coincide. The thesaurus gives the example of words "metric."  hyphenation: \ ˈme-trik\ end-of-line division: met·ric  Edit: Oh, so come conclude, I will concede the no native would have an end-of-line divison in the if the couldn"t be pronounced as two syllables. But due to the fact that orange deserve to be pronounced together either one or 2 syllables, orange is a one syllable native that has an end-of-line department in it.

Definetely 2. If you store saying it together one syllable, you might be experiencing from the part mild lazy-english language defect that reasons people come mix syllables (or also words) together, similar to when world use words favor "kinda" or "sorta", or to a further extreme, "y"all".

I still don"t understand exactly how it might be 1 syllable. I just see no method you might pronounce it the way. Record yourself saying it or something.

cook can conveniently be 1 syllable as well as 2. A lot less complicated than orange. Girlfriend must have actually some weird special ass accent.

Always held to be one syllable. Ns remember lock talk about it a lot in English Lit classes as poets host it as among those rarely words v no rhymes for it.  Even though us obviously pronounce it as 2 sylable the doesn"t average it isn"t one through the strict definition. Simply get any American (and a number of English people) to pronounce Worcester (as in Sauce) and also count the syllables.

You have the right to pronounce it but you want - i am no stickler for so-called "correct pronunciation" but Worcester is still only 2 sylables (woo-ster) and Worcestershire just 4 (Woo-ster-shi-re) although a many of human being say them v 3 (wor-chest-er) and also 5 (wor-chest-er-shi-re).  Just an instance of how the rule of joint can adjust over time.
