How to say “Gnocchi”

Share it!

This is a short post. But here are the rules.

  1. Do not pronounce the “g.”
  2. The “ch” is not as it is in change.
  3. The “gn” does not sound like the “ng” at the end of “running.

Start by putting the back of your tongue on the roof of your mouth, so you get a sharp, long “n” sound. Kind of like an “ng”, but not quite. Pronounce the “o” like the one in “hello.” Think of “cch” as a double-“k”, and the “i” like the end of donkey.

That’s it. You’re good to go.
