How to pronounce Router
A router is device that forwards data between computer networks and especially between computer networks and the internet. They are now common household devices that usually have the capability to connect to computers wirelessly, therefore giving the computer wireless internet connection.
The word router derives from the word route, which means pathway. The correct pronunciation of router in English is the object of dispute between roo-tur and rau-tur. Between British and American English there is no general difference in the pronunciation of router and both are considered acceptable pronunciations. However, the majority of people pronounce it as rau-ter. Interestingly, the way router is pronounced does not follow regional pronunciations for its root (pun not intended), where the British pronunciation of route is root and the American pronunciation of route can be root or raut.
