Thread: Rosaline Pronuncaiton?
March 13th, 2013 11:11 AM #1
So I'm writing a story where the main character's name is Rosaline. I have been pronouncing it Ros-uh-line (rhyming with Madeline)
However, I discovered that it's most often said as Rosa-leen or Rosa-lynn.
Since this is fictional/fantasy story, I could spell it differently but I have no idea how to get the "line" sound without spelling it "line"
She does get called Rose for short so maybe this doesn't matter....
Noticed that pronunciation is spelled wrong in the title, sorry about that!

Rosaline said the traditional/Shakespearean way is 'roz-a-line'.~Boys~

I would say rose-a-LEEN or rose-a-LINE depending on whether the person is a francophone or an anglophone, respectively.Loving right now:
