Please check the spelling of the word you have asked about. I suggest it is spelled "Pozole", with a "Z" instead of an "S". But, I could be wrong so please verify your source.

Assuming it is spelled "pozole", I entered the phrase "How do I pronounce pozole" into a voice synthesizer, but in Spanish so the sentence is "Cómo se pronuncia pozole". If you would like to hear it pronounced
just follow this link ----> Hear "pozole'. Give it 20 or 30 seconds to load and play.

I hope all of this is some help to you, and is what you were looking for.

Recuerdos/Regards,

Moe

posole is the correct spanish spelling, but to be accurate to the sound of the word one would substitute the s for a z - gringofro, MAY 24, 2010
oh... and by sound, I mean sound as we know it in english, though a lot of times we leave an s when it is really a z sound. - gringofro, MAY 24, 2010

Using English sounds for phonetics, it would be: "po so lay

look... English phonetics don't really explain how English is pronounced, let alone spanish. The e at the end of the word could signify a lengthening of the o, or it could be pronounced because it is a borrowed word (as in this case). - gringofro, MAY 24, 2010
Either way the pronunciation you put is correct, so bravo. - gringofro, MAY 24, 2010

The spelling on the menus of New Mexico is as the questioner spelled it. po-SO-leh is the closest phonetic spelling I can come to.

Posole makes me wonder why people put fish and corn in lye?I know it is to preserve it but hmmm how do people come up with these things?

If you are trying to phonetically spell it in US English, it would be closer to po-sole-eh. smile
