Les and I have been holding ourselves laughing about the ex-cop who burglarized his ex-wife's house and took her Victoria's Secret "lingerie" and the value was supposedly $300.00.
Les said, "With the cost of it, that was probably four pieces."
Recently, I told this story to an acquaintance and she said, "I've never heard THAT pronunciation before." I said, "Well, it IS a French word." At least she didn't pronounce it after me to let me know she thought I had mispronounced it!
Listen to the correct pronunciation:
With the French pronunciation, the "rie" in lingerie definitely rhymes with "see".
Les says, "You have to French-i-fy everything." I can't help that I am a Francophile!
How to pronounce lingerie in French with audio, no lingerie is not 'lon/ju/ray' in French.
