I've heard a lot of people pronounce it like, 'dashalb' but when I looked online for the pronunciation you can hear, 'deshalb'. Is this a regional thing?

1 Answer 1


The correct pronunciation is deshalb [ˈdɛsˈhalp], but you may hear it in many slight variations of the first vowel and the final consonant, e.g. [ˈdɪsˈhalp]. To me, dashalb doesn’t sound correct, but it may very well be a regional thing.

  • Ah okay, I'll try to adapt to the proper pronunciation. I've been using the wrong pronunciation the entire time. Thank you.
