How is Your Name Pronounced?

Postby Summerlander » 07 Nov 2016 19:11

I've been studying phonetic orthography and sometimes I play with it as a hobby. My name is Arlindo Batista. Here in the UK, my name is commonly pronounced as follows:

/ɑːˈlɪndəʊ bəˈtiːstə/

Can you communicate here how to pronounce your names? :D

And my soubriquet for lucid dreaming forums is uttered in the following way:

/ˈsʌməlandə/

Summerlander, you do not like the "R" sound?

That is the way that the Northeastern area of the US speaks too. I was doing an audit in the Boston area long ago. The local mentioned something about "Walmart" and I had no clue what he was saying. It sounded like "wulmut"

Here in England the 'R's' are mostly rejected. If we say, 'Summerlander is here,' then the R is pronounced. If we say 'Summerlander doesn't do R's,' then the R is neglected. If the next word after 'Summerlander' begins with a vowel, the R is pronounced. If it starts with a consonant ... forget about it! :-D

/deɪn/ ... :D

It's on Google. Type a word followed by 'definition'. It will give you the orthographic pronunciation too! ;)
