Italian Words Pronounced Like English But Spelled Differently.

To keep Italian pronunciation easiest, these Italian words are shown to have a similar pronunciation to English if the letters are pronounced enough alike that Italian people will probably understand what you mean if you pronounce those words as you do in English. You may merely sound like you have an ‘English accent’ in Italian.

Most likely not to be understood are short words of one syllable. The more syllables a word has, the less likely it is to be misunderstood, because the adjoining syllables help clarify the meaning of any one syllable that might sound ambiguous, and might be mistaken for a different word by the listener.

A famous funny example of French being misunderstood is “Je t’adore!” -- three syllables pronounced [zhuh tah-DOHR]. It means ‘I love you!’ -- but to an English-speaker it can sound like ‘Shut the door!’
