Can anyone tell me how you really pronounce guacamole? I have seen many conflicting answers.
Thanks

I pronounce it wok-a-mo-lay. The pronunciation can vary by region. To hear one pronunciation, go to google translate at http://translate.google.com. Select Spanish in the Translate 'from' field. Type the word you want to translate/hear in the box then click on the little "speaker" icon in the bottom right corner of the box. Of course you need speakers on your computer to listen!

Very good. The "g" is silent. Well done

Gator,
That is exactly how I was going to spell it out based on how I say it. :) But I have seen so many different versions. Some have a very slight "g" before the "w" and some have a hint of "h" before the "w" sound. Some also end with "lee" rather than "lay". I guess it's that region thing.
Thanks to you both.

I also say "wok-a-mo-lay" but also use "gwock" for short.

Now lets try Agua and Oaxaca. I think you will get different variations on those also. How about Xcalak or Gurerrero.

Did you mean Guerrero? I have not heard of the word gurerrero. Dejame te investigo pero suena como a mitotero o arguendero persona que habla mucho.

Broylance you are correct that sometimes the "g" is more pronounced as in guardar.
