How is your nick pronounced?

Post by kadani » 16 Aug 2010 19:53

I really dislike if my mental voice makes odd makeshift pronunciations for some nicknames and after I realized that poor sangi39 was mangled to /"zAn.gi noin.Und.dRai.sIk/ (or similar, I suck at transcribing German into X-SAMPA) by my inner voice, I thought that I better ask how y'all are pronounced.

I am /ka:."da:.ni:/ 8-)
Q: Il'isa sike'han suntes?
A: Xe'isa sike'han Sike'tes... kali.

In contrast to popular perception, I do have a life. I just choose to spend it conlanging.

I pronounce mine at least two different ways. The first is [sæŋi:] and the second one is [sæŋgi:], annoyingly I don't know where the stress is though :p It's the name of my first conlang and also means "tongue" and "language" :)

But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.

My name consists simply of the first letter of my first name (Christian) and my surname (Munk), so it would be pronounced

[si:.mVNk]

by a speaker of english. But I would pronounce it

[se_?\.mONk]

in danish. And if you speak german

[tse:.muNk]

I'm happy whatever you say, but don't try and pronounce the first two consonants as a cluster like [kmuNk] or [tSmVNk]

It's pronounced /ʤiks/.
Sorry, it's a terrible joke.

/ɔsɪkʰoʊn/ I guess. In case you were wondering, these are ossicones:

I've totally been reading sangi as /sɑɲi/

And I thought CMunk was just from a love of chipmunks.

EDIT: Added picture.

[mɪstɚ kɻʷəʊv] usually. [mɪstɚ krʷəʊv] when I'm feeling extra pompous.

Simply [slɪv], I guess. I might pronounce it [slɪf] most of the time, as in Dutch a final -v is really odd, and the difference between /v/ and /f/ is often omitted.

I'm more concerned about how people write it, though. It's an acronyme: S. L. in 't Veld > SLiV. Please, not Sliv or (even worse) SliV.

Hum ...

Antiphlogistine, in French it's pronounced /ɑ̃.ti.flɔ.ʒis.tin/ (wiktionary). In English, it is known as RUB A535 ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RUB_A535 ).

It is indeed a weird name ... I'm someone who likes absurd humour ... And Antiphlogistine is a part of an absurd story I'm writing ... I've adapted the The Beatles song The Yellow Submarine to Nous adorons tous l'Antiphlogistine (Everybody likes Antiphlogistine). I'm still looking for a "karaoke" version of that song without any voices to record it ...

Pretty straightforward, unless you speak mandarin, in which case the characters read pògé.

Meaning "extraordinary" or "special" if my bried search through the interwebses went ok :)

To me this sounds kind of like a word spoken by the GELF of Red Dwarf :p

Khemehekis = /xɛməˈhɛkɨs/

And this is how I imagined the other names being pronounced:
Kadani /kɑˈdɑni/
Sano /ˈsɑnou/
Sangi39 /sɑŋgiθɝtiˈnain/
LetoAtreides /ˈlitou əˈtɹiɨdiz/
CMunk /ˈsimʌŋk/ (thought it was short for chipmunk too)
Ossicone /ˈɑsɨkoun/
MrKrov /mɪstɚˈkɹɑv/
SLiV /slɪv/
Antiphlogistine /æntaiflouˈdʒɪstin/
Yiuel /jiuˈɛl/
Hakaku /haˈkaku/
Sankon /sɑnˈkoun/

/ævdʒənzə/; definitely not /avjunza/. /avʒənza/ or /avʒənzə/ if you like, since that's how its pronounced in my main conlangs.

Mine should be pronounced /I"leI.r\u/, but I usually just say /@"leI.r\u/. Pretty straightforward, the <i> is just silent.

Although my current conpeople would probably pronounce it more /i"leI.4u/ or /i"leI.4I.ju/.

I actually don't pronounce the "39" bit of my user name, that's just there, essentially, because I like 3 and 3*3 :p
