entertainment Updated: Mar 12, 2010 02:32 IST

What’s the correct pronunciation of ‘gelato’? I usually pronounce ‘g’ as it’s done in ‘gown’, but I’ve friends who pronounce the first letter as in ‘gypsy’. Which is right?

Your friends are right. The correct pronunciation for this ice cream variant, that means ‘frozen’ in Italian, is ‘jel-LAH-toe’. If you are ordering more than one gelato, impress your friends and the person behind the counter with its plural term, gelati (jel-LAH-tee).
