How do you spell / Say Ukulele?There are two widely used pronunciations, the "correct" Hawaiian "Ooh-koo-leh-leh" ( where the "Ooh" is short and the koo is a liitle longer) and the more often heard and spoken mainland version, "You-kuh-lay-lee"
But I have also heard it pronounced "Yoo-Koo-Lay-Leh"
So, now that you know how to say it, on to spelling. As far as I know the one correct spelling is "Ukulele"
The next most widely used is "Ukelele"
The important thing is that you say it right...
Here are some other "creative" spellings I have seen during my travels...
