How do I pronounce “vice versa”?
There are two ways to pronounce vice versa:
- As three syllables, with emphasis placed on the first and second syllables: [vice–vur-suh]. This is the most common pronunciation.
- As four syllables, with emphasis placed on the first and third syllables: [vice-uh-vur-suh].
Both pronunciations are considered acceptable, but “vice versa” is the only correct spelling.
