How to pronounce


The name Sinead is pronounced "shin-aid" in both British and American English. Here are the IPA transcriptions for each:

British pronunciation: /ʃɪˈneɪd/
American pronunciation: /ʃɪˈneɪd/

To pronounce this word accurately, follow these steps:

1. Begin with the "sh" sound, which is a voiceless consonant. This means that you make the sound from the front of your mouth without using your vocal chords. Your tongue should touch your alveolar ridge (the bumpy area just behind your upper front teeth).

2. Slightly release the "sh" sound and transition into the "i" sound, which is a close front unrounded vowel. To make this sound, your tongue should be high and close to the roof of your mouth, with your lips slightly spread.

3. Move your tongue down and forward to create the "n" sound, which is a nasal consonant. Keep your lips lightly touching.

4. Finish with the "aid" sound, which is a diphthong made up of the "a" sound (as in "cat") and the "i" sound. Your tongue should move from a low position to a high position, while your lips remain spread.

Practice these steps until you are able to smoothly say "shin-aid" without pausing between each sound. Remember to keep your pronunciation clear and precise.
