    Its Cash, but it depends on where you're from as your accent will mean that you pronounce it differently.

    The 'e' is supposed to be silent, so I pronouce it like KASH (like you would in terms of money).

    I used to say cash-a ages ago... until I found out it was actually just 'cash' - I felt silly saying it wrong so I changed.

    how does one pronounce Porsche

    is it Porsch or Porsch-ay or Porsch-eh ?


    you cannot pronounce it 'eether' this way, 'ither' that way or 'eather' any other way.

    Porsche is a family name, and the family members pronounce their surname PORSH-ah, not PORSH!

    I have never personally heard anyone call it cash-a or cashay till I read this post.

    Aah.. not this

    I got into an argument a while back about the pronunciation of cache on another forum.

    I, and everybody I know in real life pronounce it 'caysh'. I've heard it pronounced as 'cash', but not any onther pronunciations.

    As for Porsche - I prounounce it PORSH-ah.

    Okay.. I've just looked it up in two dictionaries we have here - an American and Australian.

    The American dictionary (Funk and Wagnalls) states that it is pronounced 'kash'.

    The Australian dictionary (a Readers digest version, based on the English Oxford) states that it is pronounced 'caysh' (it has an accent, rather than spelling it 'caysh').

    Both dictionaries are from the early 1960s.

    Another company that seems to have dissapeared is Nestles ... ness ll's they seem to have vanished and a strange new company has appeared called "ness-lay"

    Julie, the blonde, was getting pretty desperate for money. She decided to go to the nicer, richer neighborhoods around town and look for odd jobs as a handy woman.

    The first house she came to, a man answered the door and told Julie,"Yeah, I have a job for you. "How would you like to paint the porch?"

    "Sure that sounds great!" said Julie.

    "Well, how much do you want me to pay you?" asked the man.

    "Is fifty bucks all right?" Julie asked.

    "Yeah, great. "You'll find the paint and ladders you'll need in the garage." The man went back into his house to his wife who had been listening.

    "Fifty bucks! Does she know the porch goes all the way around the house?" asked the wife.

    "Well, she must, she was standing right on it!" her husband replied.

    About 45 minutes later, Julie knocked on the door. "I'm all finished," she told the surprised homeowner.

    The man was amazed. "You painted the whole porch?"

    "Yeah," Julie replied, "I even had some paint left, so I put on two coats!"

    The man reached into his wallet to pay Julie. "Oh, and by the way," said Julie, "That's not a Porch, it's a Ferrari."

    In case you didn't notice, CAYSH is the american pronounciation, whereas those from the UK/EU English Speaking Nations say "cash"(kash).
    What does it matter? its spelt the same way and we all know what each other is talking about.

    however if you say Kash (cash) I will think your talking about money
    Everytime I hear the word cash I have this involuntary action. I immediately go down on my knees with my arms outstretched, much like a puppy dog begging for a bone. Quite embarrising really. Of course I recover fairly quickly especially if I end up with the cash.
