@ Sen: No one else I know. I figure it's the Japanese Gnome pronunciation.
more like Ig-ritte in my mind.
I was thinking the Y was silent the first time I saw it but that's just how I ended up saying it. :\
well theres a tiny chance its a hard Y, and silent is near enough to that.
I was thinking since it was a northern/wildling name it would be in line with the norse pronunciations like Ygdrasil.
I do it "EE-greet". Weird, I know.
How do people pronounce Asshai? Plish and I were discussing it and I think we had "Ahss-HAI".
well my Ig is a lot like Eeg so thats okay.
for asshai, i do Ash-igh, but with more weight on the S.
I pronounce it that same as Cru. ASH-high
Unfortunately true. A British "ass" instead of an American one though.
Asshai i pronounce as Aawshaigh.
but how do you all pronounce TYWIN and TYRION? i'm not sure how to read it.
Well i personally do it: TIE-WIN and TI-REE-ON
euh...me too....except for I do TIE -ree-on
I pronounce them Tie-win and Tie-rone
TIE-win and TEE-ree-on/en. Depending on my mood.
lol I think we've all posted our Tywins and Tyrions several times at least
How 'bout Aegon: AYE-gon or EYE-gon? or AYE-gun? lol, 'AYE-gun the DRAY-gun' :littlethi
AI-gone, AI as in the letter "a" and gone with an American pronunciation.
eh? when I see the letters 'AI', i see 'eye' or like the letter 'I'.
btw is the American 'gone' different than the Canadian?
Dunno. I'm not making any assumptions after I heard one of my friend's (the GW one) friends pronounce about as "aboot".
And the way I would have chosen to put it is "ae", but that's already part of Aegon's name.
I say A-gawn...with the A how Liadan explained it lol...and I think this is how she meant it..The whole word I mean...
Separate names with a comma.
