How Do You Spell YOCOM?
The word "Yocom" is a surname that is often spelled with a "Y" instead of the more common "J" in English. The pronunciation of the name is usually transcribed in IPA as [jokəm]. The "Y" sound at the beginning is called a palatal approximant, which is created by bringing the tongue close to the hard palate. The "o" is pronounced with a short vowel sound and the stress falls on the second syllable, which is indicated by the presence of the schwa sound at the end of the word.
