Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈbaɪəsəz/, /ˈbaɪəsiz/
    • Note, the plural noun is often pronounced /ˈbaɪəsiz/ (with a "long i" sound in the final syllable) based on the erroneous belief that the -es in biases stems from the Latin third declension plural ending of the same written form. In actuality, the word comes from the French past participle biais, of uncertain origin, and the -es merely represents a standard English plural formation.
