comment How do you pronounce “bokeh”?
@lalli, while you may be right that this question would not be out of place there, I strongly disagree that it is out of place here.

comment How do you pronounce “bokeh”?
Ok, I think I get where the confusion is coming from now... I'm Australian - our "o" sound at the end of "bo" is quite different.

comment How do you pronounce “bokeh”?
According to the IPA guide referenced by koiyu, bo as in bone means it would be pronounced "/boʊkə/", and "/bɒkɛ/" would be more like bo as in Bob. Now I'm extra confused!

comment How do you pronounce “bokeh”?
Nice link. It was a very interesting read. I also saw on wiki that it could also be pronounced "boke-uh", like "poke-uh", but that hasn't been mentioned by anybody here. What's the go with that version?

While "I pronounce bokeh 'Bo-keh'" makes perfect sense, it is in no way helpful to me!

I can't read IPA. Can you add the IPA meanings for those vowel sounds to the answer, please?
