I wonder how an American pronounces…
We write: corps
We say: /ˈkɔ-ɚ/
The word “corps” means
There are 2 written letters that we don’t pronounce: p, s.
In natural speech, we say: /ˈkɔ-ɚ/.
But…be really careful how you say it.
Let’s look at this word: corpse /ˈkɔ-ɚps/. It means ‘a dead body’.
In this word we pronounce both p and s.
So, let’s compare: corps /ˈkɔ-ɚ/ (a group of people working together) …and… corpse /ˈkɔ-ɚps/ (a dead body).
This can be a really funny mistake…so be very careful when you say the word corps /ˈkɔ-ɚ/ .
