Pronouncing “Realtor” with more than two syllables drives me nuts!
Am I the only one who’s driven bat-crap crazy hearing REALTOR® pronounced with more than two syllables?
We hear it all the time, “realitor” or “reality”. I get it. I sometimes slip when I start to say, “real estate agent” and I might start, reali…. But there are people out there—many of whom ARE REALTORS®—who mispronounce it.
People, we gotta stop. Industry professionals pronounce it correctly. You get a pass if you’re not in the industry, but after learning the correct way, now you know 🙂 It’s two syllables, not three.
Drives me crazy that people like you think you’re saying it correctly when the freaking dictionary and every dictionary says you’re the one saying it wrong. The dictionary literally shows three syllables in the pronunciation people like you take the first four letters and make it all one syllable and it is not.
The dictionary pronunciation clearly says re al tor lol
It’s embarrassing to make a video saying you’re angry that everyone saying it wrong when you’re the one that’s wrong. Pronunciation is not based on popular opinion is based on the actual English language which is documented in books that we call dictionaries and every word in the English language in the dictionary has a pronunciation telling you how to say it and how many syllables it has. Just because Realtors now think it’s cool to pronounce it that way because they hear everyone complain about it doesn’t mean that’s actually the correct way to pronounce it. You should at least open up a dictionary before you make a video about it LOL
