"Dili" - sound?

Recommended Posts

though a firm "dili" will usually dissuade them.

Pronounced 'dee-lee'? 'Die-Lie'?

Dili oi.

 

lot & aka, you screwed the pooch on that one dude. LOL

 

It's pronounced phonetically somewhat like dee-lee but that spelling would give you elongated long e sounds and that won't do it. More accurately it's something like dē-lē. [short and choppy}with no major accent on either syllable. Close enough for a non expert.

in salamat the syllables are actually sal- am- at , not sal-a-mat, and the stress if on "am."

 

with dili.. it is pronounced Dill-ee, and both are only one-half syllables... although in many circumstances it is just di... as in the song...

di kita iiwan paglakbay (di key-ta ee-ee-wan pag-la*-bay) The k in paglakbay is half-silent. Filipino languages are unique in that they have half and one-quarter syllables.
