making Déjà vu sound good

I want to use the term Déjà vu but the default pronunciation in Synth V is not very good. Maybe I can manually enter better phonemes? Any ideas?

It’s a French term, so I’m not surprised it’s missing from the default dictionary.

Using English phonemes d ey / zh aa / v uw is pretty close, but it really depends what sort of accent you’re going for.

Thanks,
I checked the pronunciation in the Cambridge Dictionary as they also provide other words that contain very similar phonemes found in Déjà vu. But I found it difficult to match the z-type sound.
I will try your version first!

Thanks, tried your phonemes and they work great!
