Well, I say "ten-EB-rus" and "RA-kuh-tuh".

But the "russ" isn't like bus, more like Fus in Fus Ro Dah. Or Push. Like a short oo.

I pronounce 'Avinoam Arelis' as:

'A (like 'And') - vih - no -am' 'A( like 'And' again) - rey - lis'.

The real world pronunciation of 'tenebrous' is 'Ten-uh-brus', but it might be changed for a name, I don't know.

In the film Palpatine pronounces it "Plague- us" which I take is the correct way of doing it, but Luceno in a podcast interview was pronouncing it Play-juss and after listening to that in my mind when I read the name now I hear it that way.

Oh, I understand where you're coming from. I just can't comprehend how the author managed to mess it up when it's clearly pronounced in the film. Confused

Didn't want to derail that other thread, but continuing the Penny Arcade discussion...

Is Darth Andeddu really pronounced Darth Undead-u? If so, that's really dumb. I thought it was more like And-uhd-dew.

I never even noticed the first "d". I've always said "an-EDD-oo".

Same here. Guess someone will have to listen to the audio. Confused

I do not put stock into audio book pronunciations considering that the original Heir to the Empire audio book pronounced the Executor as execute-er instead of exec-yoo-tor.

I'm sure I've been pronouncing it incorrectly. I've been saying it 'an-deathy'. This is because I'm used to thinking oddly spelled words with a dd are Welsh in origin (in the Welsh tongue, dd is pronounced th, and u is ee). But I often correct myself by saying, 'an-dead-dew'. Which might be just as wrong.

I doubt it's really intended to be 'undead', though. More likely to be ahn-dead. Like Han.

I've been pronouncing it A(E)nd-dad-dew. Didn't even thought about Undead-u until now.

I'm thinking the audiobook pronounciation is wrong then. I can't conceive "And" somehow being pronounced "Und."

Wait, you mean I'm the only one that pronounces it plaw-goo-ees?

Just kidding.

I usually call him Darth Tragus, like the part of your ear. I just think it's funny for some reason.

How about Bacta? Is it back-ta or bock-ta? Star Wars needs to stop confusing us with the long and short A's.

Ta'a Chume? I say it Taw-choom, but that doesn't seem right.

I pronounce Yuuzon Vong as yoot-zun. Vong would sound better as vawnj, but I always say it as vawn-gh, which sounds pretty stupid.

"Vonduun Skerr Kyrric, more commonly known as Vonduun crab armor" Shocked

also I never want to hear/read Bothan, Chiss and Mandoderpaderp, again.

That's how I pronounce it.

I always thought it was bock-ta, but Jacen makes a joke in the YJK books where it's obvious that the pronunciation is supposed to be back-ta. I don't remember the joke, but it was something like, "I'll be bacta get you."

Unless, of course, an accent is implied, it could still be bock-ta. I really have no idea. Confused
