    1. niche

    2. nee

    3. albeit

    4. grande prix

    5. joie de vivre

    As a Canadian, I use the French pronunciation for 1, 4 and 5, but 2 sounds odd spoken either way, and 3 never sounds quite right either. (Excuse my French)

    OEM: It depends. Some people (Especially those of the Chassidic persuasion.) pronounce them thusly: 1) ooveenee Malk-eye-knee: 2) Yisgad-Isle ve-Yiskaad-Eish Shem-Eye Raboooooo. (As in Moooo).

    Oomis- Sh’may

    1. nitch

    2. nay

    3. ALL-be-it

    4. grand pree

    5. zhoee d’vee

    6. avinu malkeinu

    7. yisgadal v’yiskadash sh’may raba

    1. neesh

    2. nay

    3. i’ll bite

    3. grande(soft d) pree

    4. zhwa di veevre (almost silent r)

    I hate the word “albeit” in any pronunciation and usage.
