A citrus fruit that is round and also orange in color. Occasionally it is a bonus prize together in the Pac-Man series of games. Additionally comes in the form of juice and also soda.

You are watching: How many syllables in the word orange



I recently disagreed through my sister around how plenty of syllables are in the word “orange.” I stated one, she said two, so ns looked it increase in the dictionary. At very first I believed she was right, because the entry in bold was or·ange. However, I review the explanatory note in the beginning of the dictionary, and also they said that the entry word just shows exactly how the indigenous is hyphenated, not necessarily how numerous syllables room in it. 

Then ns looked in ~ the pronunciation. Over there are six ways.

Pronunciation: \är-inj, är(-ə)nj; chiefly north & Midland ȯr-inj, ȯr(-ə)nj\

How space there six? Well, the (-ə) is pronounced by some people, yet omitted by others. So the prize is orange deserve to have one or two syllables. I pronounce the /ȯrnj/.

I supplied the wrong word. Rather of speak "hyphenated," ns should"ve said the entry indigenous in the dictionary had one "end-of-line division" between "or" and also "ange." End-of-line divisions and pronunciations don"t constantly coincide. The thesaurus gives the example of the word "metric."  hyphenation: \ ˈme-trik\ end-of-line division: met·ric  Edit: Oh, so to conclude, I will certainly concede the no native would have an end-of-line divison in it if that couldn"t it is in pronounced as 2 syllables. But since orange can be pronounced together either one or 2 syllables, orange is a one syllable native that has an end-of-line department in it.

Definetely 2. If you keep saying it as one syllable, you might be suffering from the some mild lazy-english language defect that causes people come mix syllables (or even words) together, comparable to when civilization use words choose "kinda" or "sorta", or to a further extreme, "y"all".

I tho don"t understand exactly how it can be 1 syllable. I just see no means you can pronounce it that way. Record yourself saying it or something.

Always hosted to it is in one syllable. Ns remember castle talk around it a lot in English Lit classes together poets host it as among those rare words through no rhymes because that it.  Even though we obviously pronounce it as 2 sylable the doesn"t mean it isn"t one by the strict definition. Just get any kind of American (and a number of English people) to pronounce Worcester (as in Sauce) and also count the syllables.

You deserve to pronounce it however you want - ns am no stickler for so-called "correct pronunciation" yet Worcester is still just 2 sylables (woo-ster) and also Worcestershire just 4 (Woo-ster-shi-re) return a many of people say them v 3 (wor-chest-er) and also 5 (wor-chest-er-shi-re).  Just an instance of exactly how the rules of joint can readjust over time.
