#2. We actually say "jammas", with the "jam" rhyming with "slam"
The Circus says:PJ'sJammiesPah-jam-ma
Normally #1 - but right now neither one of them sounds right. A causality of saying the words over and over.
Sue says #1, I say #2. (Ha! #2!)
#2 works for me.
In the words of Ella and Louis, let's call the whole thing off.
It's the bomb.
puh-jah-mah (but then I am from Texas)
As a direct result of growing up in the midwest, all our of o's even sound like a's - sooooo the redneck in me goes with "jammies."
#1but more importantly, do you say pasta with the first "a" like #1 or #2?
I say puh-joh-mas, or, as my Mom sometimes said, joh-mers.
pj's because pajama's is a funny word when it gets said too many times. and like anything in a house with children...it gets repeated, repeatedly! So I picked "pj's"!
PaJOMBas (rhymes with bomb) but "jammies" (rhymes with Tammy's)
I say Jammies. Ha.
Always been a source of argument in our house. The right answer is #2.Sometimes in our argument I say #1 and get her all confused.
Is it Naked or Nekkid?
PJs. Except when we're messing with the 7-year old, and tell him to go "don his flame-retardant sleepwear."
#1. Although when I say "jammies," it's like #2. And sometimes PJs.
I say it like #1, although I sometimes intentionally say it like #2 instead because I think that sounds cooler.
Naked means you ain't got no clothes on. Nekkid means you ain't got no clothes on and you're up to something. (This wisdom from "Designing Women," back in the day.)
jam rhymes with slam.
it's pyjamas. puh-jarm-uhs
In most of the US, we do speak english...it is jam...like on a piece of toast.
JAM. It is like JAM, just like it looks. We say jammies or PJ's.
Sometimes you have to use both.For example:You must use Jam when referencing PajamaGram. It just goes.But if you were reading a bedtime story you might have to go the otherway. Clearly you could not say Jam when reading Llama, Llama Red Pajama.
I had never heard pajamas pronounced any way but the pa-jom-uh way, until I met my husband. I love the sound of puhjammmmuz. It sounds sweet and cozy. I hope our boys will choose my husbands pronunciation.oooh, i am way into puh-jar-muz and joh-merz. must incorporate and feign cleverness
