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

You are watching: How many syllables does orange have



I newly disagreed with my sister around how many syllables are in the word “orange.” I said one, she said two, so i looked it increase in the dictionary. At first I thought she to be right, due to the fact that the entry in bold to be or·ange. However, I read the explanatory note in the start of the dictionary, and also they stated that the entrance word only shows how the native is hyphenated, no necessarily how plenty of syllables space in it. 

Then i looked in ~ the pronunciation. There are six ways.

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

How space there six? Well, the (-ə) is pronounce by part people, but omitted by others. So the price is orange have the right to have one or two syllables. I pronounce the /ȯrnj/.

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

Definetely 2. If you keep saying it together one syllable, you may be enduring from the part mild lazy-english language defect that reasons people come mix syllables (or also words) together, similar to when human being use words prefer "kinda" or "sorta", or to a more extreme, "y"all".

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

boil can quickly be 1 syllable and 2. A lot much easier than orange. Friend must have some weird thick ass accent.

Always hosted to be one syllable. I remember castle talk about it a lot in English Lit classes as poets host it as among those rarely words with no rhymes for it.  Even though us obviously express it as two sylable the doesn"t typical it isn"t one by the strict definition. Simply get any American (and a number of English people) to express Worcester (as in Sauce) and also count the syllables.

You have the right to pronounce it however you desire - i am no stickler because that so-called "correct pronunciation" yet Worcester is still just 2 sylables (woo-ster) and also Worcestershire just 4 (Woo-ster-shi-re) back a lot of civilization say them v 3 (wor-chest-er) and 5 (wor-chest-er-shi-re).  Just an example of just how the rule of joint can readjust over time.
