So how do you pronounce Arco Iris, anyway?
In the Spanish alphabet, the letter “i” is pronounced with a long “ee” sound. So not “eye” but rather, “ee”.
The letter r in “iris” is softly pronounced, like a blend of “r” and “d” sounds. It’s not a sound we are used to in English, but easier than a rolling r!
Phoenetically, for our English speakers, Arco Iris is most similar to: ar’-koh ee’-ris
