How is the word `succulent' pronounced?
(K. Jayaraman, Thiruvananthapuram)
The `succ' is pronounced like the word `suck'. The sound that follows is like the `y' in `yes' and `yellow', and the following `u' is like the `u' in `pull', `full', and `bull'. The `e' in the third syllable is like the `a' in `china', and the main stress is on the first syllable. The word is normally used in relation to meat, fruit and vegetables. Food that is `succulent' is very juicy and good to eat.
