You used it to color everything from kindergarten on up. They came in all shapes and sizes. I remember the super fat ones from pre-school, to the box of about 9 million with the sharpener built into it! But what you do call them now? Crayons! But how do you pronounce it?

Cray-on with 2 syllables?

Cran? As in cran-berries? But you're speed pronouncing crayon into a one syllable word!

Crown? I don't even know how or where folks pulled this one from.

How do you say it?

According to the dictionary:


[krey-on, -uh n]
