How to prounounce names correctely, ep. 2

Ok, I heard several people rape the name "sacer_miles", making it "saser miles".

Now, the name is latin, which is a roman language (english is an english language). Today, we're not certain of Roman pronounciation, but the common way to say it would be: sAker mIles. the I should be like in "eat".

you pronounce the i as "ea". In roman languages, that's how i is pronounced.

So sacer_miles has some particular meaning in Roman?

I googled sacer_miles, and it took me back to the SAS forum.

I thought it was more like saucer, like flying saucer_miles

Rasa, that would be sacer_meals?

not meals: you have to pronounce the E. like the sound when you say a vowel: "M", but without the vowel.

By the way: it means "holy soldier"

Umm, I think I am still a little confused. So it is Saker.....like "for peats SAKE" then ER (Errr) after. Then miles is Meal, like dinner meal, with "es" at the end??? Meal....es???? Does everyone get that....I hope.

The "I"-SOUND, not the letter.

English-talking people pronounce the "I"-letter in two ways: the "ea"-sound and the "I"-sound. It depends on the word. In Scandinavia f,ex, the letter "I" is only pronounced with the "ea"-sound.

Some english words wich contains the letter "I":
"Internal": "ea"-sound (because "I" is the first letter).
"Mile": "I"-sound.
"Military": "ea"-sound on both I's.

I don't think I ever pronounce the letter "I" with an "ea" sound. But English is a funny language for having loads of ways of pronouncing letters in different ways. Just not as cut and dry as other languages.

No matter how hard you try, you'll never get everybody to say your name correctly - trust me. People always moan, but I can't understand how people can think adze is pronounced any other way other than... well the correct way.

When I have trouble pronouncing something I usually check the dictionary, ask some one, or use MicroSoft Sam the voice engine of Windows (Wishes for a decent voice!!).

And it passes the biggest test of how do you pronouce that in SAS - Adze as in Adze! lol.

I always used to pronounce it aids b/c of the ze untill I found out better.

That's a good point. I suppose it might be harder for you to pronounce as I've found most Americans pronounce ze wrong. Like zebra (not zeebra) is what I'm thinking of here.
