Uso

The word pronunciation is often pronounced, by analogy with pronounce, as if the second syllable rhymed with bounce. This is not correct in standard English: the standard pronunciation has the second syllable rhyming with dunce. The correct spelling is pronunciation, never pronounciation.

Origen

Late Middle English: from Latin pronuntiatio(n-), from the verb pronuntiare (see pronounce).
