    Hi teachers,

    I would like to know how to pronounce these words correctly:

    Those are not rhymes.

    Click here to hear the pronunciation of the name 'Arthur', then put 'steward' in the Search box on that page.

    Also "ski-word" is not an English word.
    "Steward" rhymes with "skewered" if that's any help!

    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
