How to Pronounce Acai
"Acai" is one of those words that can be difficult to pronounce if you have only seen it in print, or it can be difficult to spell if you have only heard of the word. Acai berries are the fruit of acai palms, trees native to Central and South America. Acai berry juices and supplements are immensely popular health products.
The correct pronunciation for the word is "ah-sigh-EE" or "ah-sah-EE" with the emphasis on the last syllable.
Because acai is a word taken from the native languages of the people of South America, it is not obvious to English speakers how exactly to pronounce acai. In addition, the most accurate way to print the word uses letters that are unfamiliar to many English speakers.
