Pronunciation of encephalitis

Recommended Posts

In England it is pronounced KEFF, in the USA it is pronounced SEFF.

In the future you can look in the dictionary for the correct pronunciation.  Many online dictionaries have icons you can click on to play a recording of the word so you can hear the correct pronunciation.  Often they will say if it is the English pronunciation or the American pronunciation.

Only 12 years too late. But never mind.

Anecdotally, it seems to me that, although professionals in the UK pronounce it KEFF, most laypeople would say SEFF.
