In American English, 'groceries' has several forms of pronunciation. But is one the "correct" way to say it? Editor Serenity Carr breaks down the various kinds of 'groceries.'

Transcript

Whether you're a weekend shopper or a Tuesday afternoon one, chances are you buy these at least weekly: grōs-rēs, or maybe you buy grō-sə-rēs, or perhaps you buy grōsh-rēs. We do not judge, in fact, our dictionary says all three pronunciations are just fine.
