so how do you say 'Mobile'? as in crib mobile

do you say "mo-beal" or "mo-bul" like a mobile phone kind of thing? Curious what is the correct way to say this word :)

Re: so how do you say 'Mobile'? as in crib mobile

  • I say mo-beal, which might be wrong, I dont know. My Fiance says mo-byle though. I have no idea how it is pronounced. Maybe that's a sign I'm not intelligent enough to have and raise children, if I can't pronounce names of the toys that they play with. LOL
  • it's mo-byle

  • mo-beal.  rhymes with automobile.  you don't say "automobull."  same root word/idea. 

    but it may be a regional thing. i hear it both ways here in SoCal.

  • I think it's a regional thing too and both are acceptable. I say mo-bull.
