How Do You Spell TERNE?
The word "terne" may seem confusing at first glance, but its spelling can be explained through phonetic transcription using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). The word is pronounced /tərn/ and is spelled with the letters "t-e-r-n-e". The "e" at the end of the word is silent, but it affects the pronunciation of the preceding "r" by altering it to a schwa sound. This pronunciation is common in many English words with final "e"s such as "bike" and "cone".
