I’ve been hearing conflicting methods of how to pronounce “sei”, as in “não sei”.
In the review card “Eu não sei”, it sounds to me like the English word “sigh”. But looking online, others pronounce it like the English word “say”. Is “sigh” the European pronunciation and the other one is Brazilian?
I saw that there’s a similar topic (Help with pronunciation of "ei") but it’s almost 2 years old, so I’ll avoid pinging everyone there. (By the way, in that thread, what Joseph described as the ‘ay’ sound I would consider the reverse: the ‘igh’ sound.)
I trip over this so much I have a flashcard with a mnemonic, but now it looks like I’d better come up with a new one!
