Depalatization[edit]

According to w:Hypercorrection, many Russian speakers mistakenly depalatize the з to emphasize the foreign origin of this word. If that can be confirmed, a usage note is in order. Rod (A. Smith) 20:35, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

The pronunciation as "музэй" is sometimes heard, especially from those who work in museums, but it is incorrect. —Stephen 19:50, 6 July 2007 (UTC)
