Pronounced: Au-gù-ri (Dizionario Italiano Garzanti). Ahu-gu-ree (Roberto's Americanized version of the word).
Meaning: Best Wishes or Greetings I use auguri to send best wishes to friends and family for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, in fact, any celebration. You might recall I headed my Christmas Eve blog Tanti Auguri! Auguri Giovanni; oggi è il tuo compleanno (Greetings Giovanni; today is your birthday). Auguri Stefania e Francesco per il tuo anniversario (Greetings Stefania and Francesco on your anniversary). Note: I show the pronunciation of each Word of the Day as found in Dizionario Italiano Garzanti, followed by Roberto's (Americanized) pronunciation of each daily word. To listen to a native Italian speaker say the Word of the Day click here, http://www.vocabolaudio.com/it/auguri, then click the audio symbol next to the word.
