Hey there, piercing enthusiasts! Ever wondered if you prounce the word labret piercing as "la-bret" or "la-bray"?
Let's dive into the confusion and clear things up!
First things first, a labret is a piercing below the lip. The word "labret" finds its roots in Latin, coming from "labram," which means lip, plus "it," making it "la-bret." So, technically, it's pronounced "la-bret".
Over time, though, people started thinking it had a French origin, leading to the "la-bray" pronunciation. Here's the scoop: since labret has Latin origins, the correct way to say it is "la-bret". But hey, language is fluid—potato, potahto, right?
Whether you say "la-bret" or "la-bray", we totally get what you mean.
