The pronunciation of car depends on the dialect you speak. For example, in Britain, it is pronounced /ka:rz/. However, in American English, it is pronounced /ka:rz/. In addition, the word can be spelled with a 'd' sound or without a 'd', depending on whether it is being used as a plural noun or an adjective. The 'd' sound can also be added to the endings -ay and iy-, forming dipthongs such as say and day.
