Oxford dictionary defines ‘finale’ as ‘the closing section of a performance, event or musical composition.’
Let’s know how to pronounce ‘finale’.
This word consists of three syllables. The ‘i’ in the first syllable and the ‘e’ in the final syllable are like the ‘i’ in ‘hit’; the ‘a’ is like ‘a’ in ‘path’ and ‘bath’. The stress is on the second syllable ‘na’. The word is thus pronounced ‘finaali’
