  • The correct English (as in British) pronunciation is Onvelope, it is derived from the french word meaning the same. The Americans have their own unique way of pronouncing many English words.

      As the dullards can see, either is acceptable.

  • I think I use them interchangably.

  • En-ve-lope because it 'envelops' the letter

  • It's weird, I have pronounced it both ways, with no reasoning behind saying it one way or the other.
