    Default Peter Gade

    How's his surname sounds? Is it [geid] or [ga:de] or sth else? Sorry for a dumb question!

    That's not a dumb question. Danish pronounciation is quite tricky! (Even from a Swede's point of view)

    [geid] is wrong. It's closer to [ga:de]... I'm not really into phonetic writing (especially not in English), but the "a" (where the emphasis lies) is like in "gas" or "gangster", and the d is very soft. The "e" is audible but without emphasis, and should sound like the "e" in "ten".

    Hops this made sense...

    You're welcome, Yogi! Wasn't it Stephen Hawkings who said that "if the reader fails to understand, there is little I can do"!

    The "user profile" discussion has been up before! I am sure Kwun (to whom it was directed) understands perfectly well!

    Keep up the loud voice!

    Default Is this getting out of hand?

    Mmm... but the "e" is not like in "the" though... *lol*
    More like the "e" in "them"!

    So the equation would be: "gas" - s + "them" - m = gade



    Are we ready to move on to "Helene Kikegaard" now?

    Hilarious posts. In that case someon should tell Gillian Clarkes and co commentators that it is not Gayda as she pronounces it.

    hmm.. maybe we should get all the international players to say their names and post them up here in some wav. format or something. Btw does anyone fancy explaining how to pronounce Xia Xiaunze (i've heard za zinua) and zay shuazee).

    Anyway i rest my case.

    That's a difficult one. Haha. Let's see. I can't write well in IPA, but it's roughly [sia jun(shuen) ze(the 'e' as in the)]. Hope I didn't just make it worse!! =P

    Oops, my apologies. The irregular letters did not turn out properly.
    Rewriting, it's SIA SHUEN (the 'e' sounding between 'cat' and 'bet') ZE (the 'e' as in 'the'.

    Default Try Zhou Mi

    Going back to last year's AE finals, when the umpire said Zhou Mi's name (in the introduction), she was highly amused and repeated the pronounciation to somebody on the opposite side of the court (Gong ZC)

    Default Or try this:

    I must admit I'm 100% sure how to pronouce the family names of Sujitra Ekmongkolpaisarn, Patapol Ngernsrisuk or Kulchala Worawichitchaikul either... But I guess I'll just have to live with that.

    because 's' is used to represent another sound. There is a fixed sytem of anglocising Chinese words in Mandarin in China and Singapore. It's called the Han Yu Pin Yin.
