    Dumb Question but needs to be asked...lol

    Is it pronounced HUB (hubcap) Lot ( parking lot) or Hoob Low? or is it something else entirely?

    Closer to: oub' low... The H is silent and the accent is on the first syllable.

    I pronounce it very similar to your HOOB LOW and pretty much like how Reinman60 says But I do pronounce the H.

    It's very difficult for most English-speaking (English and American variety) mouths to get the French "u" sound....... it's almost closer to an "e" or an "ew" than the commonly used "ou" or "oo".


    Might as well give up and go with "Hooblow" !
