how do French/ American people pronounce this word?
the scene: Ross's building manger steve wants him to chip in to a retiring handyman, but ross has just moved in, so he doesn't wanna give steve the money, now he's telling Chandler and Rachel that he's gonna throw a party to invite them all. but at last Ross pronounces it like /partei/ instead of regular pronunciation /parti/. why would he do that? also he once pronounced karate as /kəˈrɑːtei/ instead of /kəˈrɑːti/. so the way i see it is because French words end with /ei/ sound a lot, so Ross wants to make his party or karate sound fancy or romantic, in a French way, is that right? what do think of Ross's weird (fancy) pronunciation? thanks a lot:)
Ross: …so then President Steve told everyone that I was a cheapskate, and now the whole building hates me! A little kid spit on my knee! Y'know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna throw a party. That's right. For everyone in the building, and I'm gonna sit them down and explain to them, I am not a bad guy. I am not a cheap guy! I'm just a guy who-who stands up for what he believes in. A man with principles.
Chandler: Sounds like a fun party.
Rachel: Hmm. Look, Ross, if you want your neighbors to like you, why don't you just pay the hundred bucks? The party's gonna cost you way more than that.
Ross: It doesn't matter! It's my principles! We're talking about my principles!
Rachel: Okay, I thought it was about your neighbors liking you.
Ross: Oh, they'll like me. Once they come to my awesome 【PAR-TAY】!
