how is Bucerias pronounced?

I'm not sure how to pronounce Bucerias. Is the c a hard c, as in cake, or an s sound, as in circle?

It's soft BUT what you need to do is get a Spanish book showing the pronunciations of all Vowels which is different than English

lol. funny. I always wonder - what is the statute of limitations for one to consider themselves local? I never know if I am or am not....

luckily no one really cares about the perfection in prununciation here anyway. It counts for more to make an effort which is nice.

cheers

I agree.

Boo-sir-e-us is correct.

Boo-sir-e-ah is local slang. (for some)

You are right effort is what counts
