Usage notes[edit]

  • The pronunciation /brʊˈskɛtə/ (with a "sk" sound as in "school") is close to the Italian pronunciation. The pronunciation /brʊˈʃɛtə/ (with a "sh" sound as in "Schubert") comes from interpreting the sch trigraph as "sh". While the latter pronunciation diverges from the Italian one, it is commonly heard.
