    I know this is a silly question, but French is not one of the languages I know. Is it pronounced Le Cell-ee-air or Cell-ee-ay? Thanks!

    I belive it is pronounced more like Lay-Celli-A or maybe Lay-Seli-A. The R should be silent.

    I pronounce it as lay sell yay, but then I speak French with a German accent.

    Thanks for the responses. Originally I thought the R was silent, but the last time I called for reservations, the girl said Le Cell-ee-air. I wasn't convinced, though.

    The r is silent. If I remember my high school french correctly, anytime that r is proceeded by ie then the r is silent. Our last name is french but that doesn't mean I speak the language by any means. Our last name ends in ier

    :)

    This is the best phonetic description i've seen lately.. just remember to run the Cell into the Yay part, as it is one word. :thumbsup2

    Yes my CM kept repeating it with the R over and over again too. She was like "oh you mean Le Cell LeaR"? She must be so annoyed from hearing pronounced "wrong" day in and day out...lol

    With my knowledge of the French language... this pronunciation seems most accurate. Le IS NOT pronounced "lay"
