The 'au' in Latin renders an "ow" kind of sound, and the e in ~ the finish is quick making the sound like a an extremely low initiative "eh" (not choose the Fonz speak "Eyyy" or exactly how we pronounce the letter 'A' since that would certainly be a lengthy e), therefore it's like saying "loud eh." simply make certain you put focus on the 'au' part, not the 'e' part.

Classical Latin:

Cum laude: /kũː ˈlau̯.dɛ/

Magna cum laude: /ˈmaːŋ.naː kũː ˈlau̯.dɛ/

Summa cum laude: /ˈsʊm.maː kũː ˈlau̯.dɛ/

Cum could also be /kʊm/, depending upon time and also place

Summa, relying on where you autumn in the nasalization argument can possibly be /sũː.maː/, however that appears odd come me personally.

Ecclesiastical Latin:

Cum laude: /kum ˈlau.dɛ/

Magna cum laude: /ˈma.ɲa kum ˈlau.dɛ/

Summa cum laude: /ˈsu.ma kum ˈlau.dɛ/

Average Joe's English:

Cum laude: /kʊm ˈlɑʊ.deɪ/

Magna cum laude: /ˈmæɡ.nə kʊm ˈlɑʊ.deɪ/

Summa cum laude: /ˈsʊ.mə kʊm ˈlɑʊ.deɪ/

Cum may additionally be pronounce /kʌm/ in all of these

Summa may likewise be pronounced /ˈsʌ.mə/

Unless the beginning is in Latin, ns would more than likely go through the anglicized version, i beg your pardon rhymes with applaud. But as others have noted, that is no technically correct.

This is the only thing that provides sense.

Latin honors space based in the legacy of English speaking universities that would have used the English timeless pronunciation also when classes were singular Latin.

Using Google interpret is worth in this case, due to the fact that it has the text-to-speech tool. Anyway, the correct pronunciation usually complies with Italian rules, except for -ti- in laetitia — in Italian I would certainly say letítia however it is read* together laetitia or let*ízia, if you use Scholastica pronunciation.
