    Default Pronunciation of "Skype"

    Hi all,

    I'd like to know how do you pronounce "Skype"? No need to tell me how dictionary pronounce, I just want to know how would you pronounce this brand name? Thanks.

    It's pronounced 'skyp', like 'sky' with a 'p' sound at the end. (one syllable) It rhymes with 'type' and 'pipe'.

    Have you ever hear people say "Skypee" with unstress "pee" sound at the end?

    Not that I know of. But your heuristic is productive.

    Penske is pronounced as pen-skee
