: : Hi,

: : Sorry for my previous misspelt posting. I had received an email from a lady named Annette and did want to make a mistake in pronunciation. I am from Bangalore, in India. Thanks for all your help.

: : Deepika

: That's OK; if you want to make a mistake in pronouncing 'Annette' then just pronounce it 'Harry'. This is probably bad enough to be going along with but in time you may find even worse ways of pronouncing it.

Deepika, the real answer, if you want the American pronunciation, is "ann-ET." The first syllable rhymes with "can." The second syllable rhymes with "met" and is accented.
