    Ta-sit-uh.

    The 'a' is short.
  • ParuaParua Member Posts: 319 Gifted
    PAH-roo-ah

    Emphasis on the first syllable
    When I say it, the second syllable is very short, and the r is soft, almost an l sound.

    Very definitely not pah-ROO-ah
    A whisper from the trees and a frosty presence tells you, secretly, "But you are strong, little 
    flower, and wise." The voice shifts and expands, becoming more real. "And everything you just said 
    in the ritual made me feel safer. You should, too."

    I alternate between Mal-ih-gorn and Mal-ih-jorn depending on how I feel.

    I started by pronouncing it sa-LIss (all short vowels, emphasis on i), but over the years it has evolved into sA:liss (long a, short i, emphasis on a).

    All this time I have been pronouncing the C as a K. *facepalm*

    For me: Ria-lorm. Easy :D

    Woo IPA! Ried's would be /ɾid/ then, or, if you're funny, "read" as in "readlog" or "read letter."

    I always thought your name was pronounced halfway between Rid and Read. :)

    Kar-lack

    The divine voice of Avechna, the Avenger reverberates powerfully, "Congratulations, Morkarion, you are the Bringer of Death indeed."

    You see Estarra the Eternal shout, "Morkarion is no more! Mourn the mortal! But welcome True Ascendant Karlach, of the Realm of Death!

    Wouldn't that be ri:d?

    Probably. It's been 5 years since I used IPA, so I don't entirely remember the difference between /ɾid/ and /ɾi:d/.

    /i/ does the work on its own. Unless the duration of the vowel sound is actually lengthened, you don't need the triangular colon symbol.

    Other than rice, Shuyin makes me think of the Schuykill and I end up pronouncing it incorrectly in my head (a lot of out of towners call it the shoo-ee-kill (instead of sku-kill) so he becomes shoo-ee-win. Stewie-win? Something).

    Iytha is surprisingly difficult! It's iet-ha rather than iye-tha. The T and the H aren't part of the same syllable.
  • ShaddusShaddus Outside your window.Member Posts: 6,925 Transcendent
    I always pronounced it Ith-e-uh. 
  • MunsiaMunsia The Supreme Goddess Member Posts: 1,374 Transcendent
    Even though it can't be pronounced that way, sooo do I.

    Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
  • LendrenLendren Member Posts: 91 Adept
    Since all my characters are dormant it's moot, but my alt Tsianina should be pronounced "tsha-nee-na" with the accent on the first syllable, and that first "t" downplayed (if you're not paying attention you'd hear "sha-nee-na"). The name is actually a Cherokee word meaning "wildflower". (Not particularly apt for her, or for her mother to have given to her, but I do love the name.)
