Please tell me the pronunciation and meaning of draught beer. Is draft the correct way to say it?
Damini Roy, CR Park
That’s the question that comes to most people’s minds when ordering what is essentially beer drawn from a keg or tap. Draught is a variant spelling of draft and is normally pronounced the same way – draaft.

I would like to request the correct pronunciation of ‘habanero’ chilli.
Raj Mathur, Nizamuddin
The most common mistakes that people make when pronouncing this term is including the ‘h’ sound and using ‘ny’ in place of ‘n’. Note that the ‘h’ is silent here, and the ‘n’ sound is as in ‘banana’. So, the correct pronunciation is ah-ban-air-oh.
