    Default Benveniste

    Hello,

    Could I ask you if you happen to know how the proper noun "Benveniste" (the French linguist) is pronounced in English. I have tried to obtain this piece of information by looking it up in Well's Pronouncing Dictionary, but to no avail.

    Many thanks in advance !
