Policy officers – Poli-cee

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Should the word ‘police’ be pronounced as ‘policy’ or ‘po-lease’? If I was learning English for the first time, I would think ‘policy’ or ‘poli-cee’. The policy officers are enforcing statutes or policies of the local corporation that calls itself a city government (partly because no one is running the real non-corporate government).

As I write this, I wonder if the word is really ‘poli-sea’.

Or maybe it’s polis-ee. Polis means ‘city’ in Greek.

I simply don’t think the word should be pronounced as po-lease. More thinking to be done!
