Default Pronunciation

This isn't a problem when posting in a forum, but I currently avoiding speaking the word "agricole" since I am uncertain re how to pronounce it. Anyone care to enlighten me? Thanks in advance for the education.

Hm, it's like:

R (the letter, but just the first part, without the tongue taken back) grie (like grief without f) call (with an open short a) --> rgriecall

Have fun to practice - it's more easy with an accompanying Depaz Vieux X.O. ~:0)

Thanks guys. Thanks in particular for the link. Hearing agricole spoken was most helpful. Besides that, it was great to get to hear the recordings. Thumbs up.
