Hi Kai, the difference is very subtle. "How can you pronounce this word?" is asking which pronunciation(s) are possible for that word. "How do you pronounce this word?" is asking for either the most common or correct way to pronounce that word or how the person you're asking pronounces it. Hope that helps!
