my mom has a CD of french classical music and in the back of the booklet it has this little collection of phrases and the pronunciation guide is the worst thing ive ever seen
"nawng" ???? "rerwhar"??? "byang"??? "bawngzhoor"???
Why did they add all those “g”s??? And as far as I know, “v”s sound the same between both languages?
I think I kind of understand what they were trying to do… Like, if you pronounce “bawng” for bon, in doing the whole sound you will pronounce the “a” close to how the “on” should sound… but you will also pronounce an extra “wg” that has no business being there. It won’t sound like French.
I’m no expert in English pronunciation (and it might change with regional accents) but instead of trying to simply add as many letter as one can to translate the sounds, I’d make a quick guide (without diving in the
(They got some stuff as right as can be though, like “oi” sounding like “wa” and “ou” sounding like “oo”. And I guess “hr” is as close as anything to the French “R”. That is a sound that simply has no equivalent anywhere in English. It’d not like the Spanish “R” either. You will have to listen to it in some wor another.)
"E" kinda sounds like the 1st "a" from again
"É" sounds like "hey" (then try to drop the "h" sound, so “‘ey")
"È", and the occasional "Ê" sound like the "e" in edge or egg
"J" (and the soft "G") is kind of equivalent, except that you English folk then to make a "DJ" sound… I figure you might need to listen to yourself carefully to notice, and then practice dropping the "d" sound…
"AN" (and sometimes, "EN") … well enough of you know how to pronounce "croissant” so you got it covered.
"ON" again I believe enough people nowadays can say "filet mignon" and nail the "on" sound :)
"IN" (and sometimes, "EN" or "EIN") is really tricky but I guess everyone knows how to pronounce "Einstein”, right? Or a bit like “yen” (the japanese currency). Try to isolate the “E” sound without the “-n”.
Once you got that down… you are ready for the expert level:
"BIEN" … You take that sound you painstakingly managed to do for "IN" and go "byIN", or beeIN (like it’s imperative that the "by" sounds like "bee" and not "by" like in "bicycle”)
And then I guess if all else fails…Bayaaaaaaaannnnngggg is pretty funny! :D
neko gave me a ‘HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNG’ of approval to post this so HERE IT IS
LOOK HOW MUCH SHE IMPROVED IN TWO YEARS
YEAH NEKO YOU GO NEKO
Are those…April’s Fools thingies? Clicking on Star’s leads to a Pinterest page about cookie recipes, Ryuki to a weird-ass video of LOTR characters dancing to japanese music, and Neko’s to a pic of Cookie Monster passed out after too many shots of milk and cookies…
Was, like, Tegs replaced by a cookie clicker game or whatever on April Fools, and those who played received these depending on their score or something???
