Pronunciation: The `s’ sounds like the `sh’ in `shoot’, `should’, and `ship’, and the following `piel’ is pronounced like the word `peel’.”
Another way of pronouncing the word is to pronounce the `sp’ like the `sp’ in `spool’, `spill’, and `sport’.
A spiel is a well rehearsed speech that a person gives very often. Spiels are usually given in order to persuade people.
Examples: Prabhakar gave us a spiel on why we should invest in his company. * When my boss started his spiel on how difficult things were when he started the company, most of us groaned. He gives that spiel whenever someone asks for a raise.
