Just wondering if anyone can answer this pronunciation issue I'm having. I record audio books for a living, and have just had a British narrator come in for some readings. While she read a particular novel, she pronounced the word "provenance" as "PRO-vin-ince" or sometimes "PRO-vin-ahnce" as opposed to "PRAHV-in-ince" which is the most prominent pronunciation I found. I was just wondering if she could get away with saying it that way, or if you think it needs to be changed. Thanks!
Context is important. Please provide enough for us to be able to deal effectively with your question.
Your thread title should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.
If you just want to know the meaning of a word, try OneLook Dictionary Search first.
M-W lists -ahnce pronunciation. Then, the issue boils down to OH vs AH. BrE dictionaries list the latter as well as its rounded variant. Yes, one can get away with these things. Not a big deal.
