What is the correct pronunciation for Rosaline?
Rozlyn? Rose-a-line with a long I? Rose-a-leen? Roz-a-line with a long I? Roz-a-leen? Something else? All the rhyming lines have the long I sound-Thine, Mine, etc...I need to know, as it is driving my teacher and I apart! Thank you in advance for any answers I may receive. I do appreciate your time and efforts helping all of us who so need you.
The other pronunciation I often hear, Roz-uh-lehn, is most often associated with the spelling "Rosalyn" rather than "Rosaline." Although there are several "correct" pronunciations of the name Rosaline, the most commonly accepted in regards to Romeo and Juliet is "Rose-ah-lyne."
The correct pronunciation is Roz-a-line.
