is it ray shin or rash in? 🙂
Neither. Ra-shun. Rhymes with stay-shun.
The issue is how to pronounce the “A”, and it varies based on dialect.
Depends if you are using as a noun or verb.
When used in rational, I believe it is pronounced as rash-in-ul. However, when used in ration, it is pronounced as ray-shun.
dictionary.com says “[rash-uhn, rey-shuhn]” (both)
Any other opinions? Showjoe the problem with dictionary.com is that I couldnt find when to use each one a.k.a either rash-uhn or rey-shuhn!
both are correct.
YW i think it mean u can use wich ever one u want (i.e. there are 2 in pronunciations)
