To rhyme with plot or with the same sound as the ending of toilet?

Clear as mud I'm sure!

OhFuds Fri 18-Nov-16 20:19:58

I say Char-let

RamsayBoltonsConscience Fri 18-Nov-16 20:21:27

Shar- lot

Char-lotte to rhyme with plot but that might just be my accent!

Primaryteach87 Fri 18-Nov-16 20:22:43

I say char-lut - sort of half way between the two

LottieDoubtie Fri 18-Nov-16 20:23:10

Lot to rhyme with plot definitely

EccentricPickle Fri 18-Nov-16 20:24:05

I say Shar-let.

My favourite name!

To rhyme with mutt or tut...which isn't quite the same as toilet

EccentricPickle Fri 18-Nov-16 20:25:20

Actually, I probably pronounce it more like PrimaryTeach1987 does.

scrivette Fri 18-Nov-16 20:25:37

I say Shar lot.
My Mum says Shar lut.
We both think the other is wrong!

OSETmum Fri 18-Nov-16 20:29:36

Char-lot but I think I'm wrong!

Shar lut

DerelictMyBalls Fri 18-Nov-16 20:31:03

Sharlut

Justwhy Fri 18-Nov-16 20:31:07

See. My friends all pronounce it lut and I pronounce it lot. Knew there were others like me!

In my head it sounds like Char-Lott to rhyme with it but I've just said it aloud and it actually sounds more like Char-let. Hmm.

Sharlet, to rhyme with Scarlet.

BratFarrarsPony Fri 18-Nov-16 20:31:44

nobody says 'char - lut -

Shar l (schwa)

My friend Charlotte really hates the Char-LOT pronunciation.

It's Char-lut.

Backingvocals Fri 18-Nov-16 20:32:31

I am one and I absolutely hate Shar Lot.

Normandy144 Fri 18-Nov-16 20:33:04

I have a Charlotte and she's Char-lut.

Shar Lut

BroomstickOfLove Fri 18-Nov-16 20:33:28

SHAR- lut for the name of an English person, Shar-LOT for the cakey thing or a French person.

BroomstickOfLove Fri 18-Nov-16 20:34:30

Rhymes with harlot.

Shar-lut.
