English : Blasi

How is the word Blasi pronounced? What does it mean?

By Mrs. Renee, Washington, USA – 24th May 2007.

a in the first syllable is pronounced like the a in bath, path and calf. The e is like the ay in day, bay and say. The s is pronounced like the z in zebra, zoo and zip. As for the main stress, some dictionaries have it on the first syllable, while others have it on the second.

When you are blasi about something, you are not excited or worried about it, though those around you may find it exciting or important. Of course, this impression that you create that you are bored and not excited could be just an act.

Here are a few examples.

• When Shyam's parents heard that he had won two million dollars, they were excited. But Shyam himself was very blasi about it.

• Unlike her father, Sushi is very blasi about parties.

• Bharath goes to America so often that he has become blasi about it.
