    Hello, Mohammed!

    What is your question?

    In the US, we pronounce it both ways. It depends on the context and the preference of the speaker.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    I did. I didn't hear a question.

    When you make a post, always type out your question in the text. That helps us a lot.


    Thanks in advance.
    As I said, in the US we say it both ways. Where I live, be-LOV-id is much more common than be-LOVD.

    It's not a very common word. When they use it, Americans may pronounce it with either two or three syllables.

    It's much more important to say "Please" when you're asking people to do something than to thank them in advance. It is important to thank them after they help you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    And in any event, don't use "in advance" anywhere, ever. Of course it's in advance. We can't answer a question before you ask it.

    Just say "Thanks," "Many thanks," "Thank you," or "Thank you very much."

    Re: The pronunciation of the word beloved

    Some folks evidently really dislike "Thanks in advance." It doesn't bother me a bit and it's widely used in American English (at least) to indicate anticipated gratitude. I suggest UsingEnglish members refrain from using it here because some of our most valued members don't like it. Don't worry about using it elsewhere.
