Well, I seem to recall one of these in The Pit a while back...I searched for it, but I can't find it...so here it goes...

Basically, any words that you are unsure of how to pronounce, post 'em here...

I'll start out...

How the hell do you say 'maitre d'? Jesus Christ. What a stupid word.

Also, that Agalloch song 'Odal' has always confused me. Anyone know how to say that one?

Has the world come to a conclusion on just how that is said?

And what about the country Iraq? I always hear different pronounciations, (maybe that has more to do with accents) so is there an official way to say it?

How do you pronounce Cuomo. As in Rivers Cuomo, of Weezer.


I always refer to him as Rivers, but I'm afraid I'm not on a first-name basis with him yet.

Yeah. I always thought you guys had a weird way of saying it.

I've also heard ee-rock, ee-rack, ih-rock, and other variants...

I always just said it, Froo-shee-an-tee.

I'm probably wrong, though. I hate the Chili Peppers.

No, dammit, Iraq is pronounced Ih-rock in Arabic, and since that's what they speak there,that's how they'd say it. Eye-rack and Ih-rack are Americanisms. (Dare I say Texasisms.)
Can't stop the signal.
