How do you pronounce the word "Loure" ?

Why I ask a such simple question is because I have got so many different examples of how to pronounce it.

This word does not exist Razz

You probably mean "lourd" (heavy)

then it's pronounced "lour". As often the final d is silent

Julien, thanks but that word do exist, it is a baroque French dance, most famous maybe from the classical composer Bach.

Wikipedia writes about it here

Ah OK, sorry then.

I had never heard about loure.

The pronunciation must be like jour, with a l instead of the j of course Mr. Green
