    Note my corrections above. Don't put a space before a comma or a full stop. Always put a space after a comma and a full stop.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Forvo is a great website if you want to hear how native speakers pronounce a word. Click HERE to reach 7 pronunciations of the word "usually".

    Re: how do you say usually?

    If you are interested in tracing changes to the spoken language in the last hundred years, the first edition of Daniel Jones' English Pronouncing Dictionary is a fascinating resource. I should not consult it for current English, though.

    Re: how do you say usually?

    I usually pronounce it as in the American example at Forvo in the sentence about the particularly perceptive person. You'll notice that the second /u/ sound isn't pronounced in that sample. The American examples that pronounce the /u/ are not representative of typical connected speech.
