Does 'u' sound? Or is it so reduced sound that almost not heard?

['okli] or [oukli]?

I agree with Wilmar: "Oakleigh" would be pronounced "oak-lee" with the accent on the first syllable, and the second syllable short and fast. The surname Leigh (as in the name of the actress Vivian "Scarlet O'Hara" Leigh) is pronounced "Lee".



Thank you!

What about 'oak' - ['ouk] or ['ok] ?

Should one use an article "the" with seas?

Black sea or the Black sea?
Aral sea or the Aral sea?

As far as I know one should use an article "the" with oceans and rivers, but should not do this with lakes.

Is the sentence correct?

To the blessed memory of my grandmother and my grandfather is devoted


Or should it be

Devoted to the blessed memory of my grandmother and my grandfather ?

What preposition should be used with the verb "refuse"?

- I won't take it, - he refused of/from it.

But one can 'deny' the fact of something.

Is "deny" needed an object or not?

'We have no ...', they denied.
