How To Pronounce “breviary”?




That is how I have always pronounced it and how I have always heard it pronounced. I can definitely see why someone would pronounce it bree-vee-air-ee, but I don’t know if I’ve ever heard someone say it that way in person. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t, just that I don’t remember. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


Nope, I’d say it the same. I think you can say either breh or bree but I could be wrong. I say Divine Office instead lol.




Bree ver eee

I’ve heard many priests say this.

NOTE: I’m in the NorthEast part of the United States
