I say it the way she does in the video. I don't particularly like them so I don't use the word often.

I am close to the way she says it, but I might not use quite as much stress on the second syllable. I am not sure. I find it hard to hear exactly how I say it. Have you ever noticed when you hear your recorded voice that it doesn't sound the way you hear it as you say it?

I pronounce it like the dictionary for U.S. But I thought the U.K. pronunciation absolutely weird. Is that how you pronounce it in England? Goofy, what about Canada?

The US and UK pronunciations sound almost the same except for the stress.
I say /krəˈsɑnt/ like the youtube video Geoff links to.

I think most of us pronounce it similarly to the original French, although I have heard the word pronounced like "cross-ont" with the letter "t" pronounced.

I don't pronounce the t, but maybe I should?

I pretty much pronounce it [kʁwa.sɑ̃]. Or perhaps [kwasã] in American General. I have never heard before the other pronunciations in the wild.

Yes, long time, no see, Z! I hope all is well in beautiful California.
Interesting that you pronounce it with kw. I am going to have to listen to how others pronounce it now because I am not sure I've heard it that way.
