This Week: More pronunciation on the podcast (French this time!) + rondezvous/rendezvous
The first syllable of “rendezvous” rhymes with “pond” but is not spelled like it. It comes from a word related to English “render” and is hyphenated in French: rendez-vous. In English the two elements are smooshed together into one: “rendezvous.”
On the podcast this week, we make a few more pronouncements about pronunciation (this time it's French).
