How To Pronounce Luthier

I almost never hear anyone correctly pronounce the word "luthier" correctly.

What you hear most frequently is something like this: Looth-ee-er

The correct pronunciation is: LOO-ti-…ôr (no h sound). The root word is lute, so it makes sense.

If you want to sound really pompous you could also run with: LOO-ti-ay (but only with a glass of cabernet in your hand).

If you want to sound like a total jackass go with the Pompous + Fonz ending: Loo-ti-aaaaaaaaay
