I love it too. But -- it is kind of disturbing when you think of it with today's perspective . . .

According to Cambridge the "H" is silent in US and not in UK. I can catch the meaning either way but Cambridge is the so called authority on it:[/url][url=https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/pronunciation/english/vehicle]vehicle

now that I think about It i'm sure I've used it both ways and didn't think much of it.


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

I always pronounce the H

I never knew it was supposed to be silent.

As far as the original question, silent 'h' in vehicle, three syllables, emphasis on the first syllable. At least, that's how we hosers talk.

Funny, but the more I say it, I realize I say it "Ve-yic-le".
I was thinking it was a soft "h", but seems more of a "y" sound

In conversation I say car.

But, If i was to pronounce, I would say, "Ma'am, step out of the VE'-a-kL ...NOW!"

I am variable on Roof and Route depending on mood and time of day. Don't know why.

Honestly it depends on how fast I'm saying it. If I slow down, I pronounce the "H," if I'm going a mile a minute it gets tossed out the window
