U2democrat 12-17-2004 11:57 AM

as an ignorant american, could you please tell me how to pronounce testje? is it "test-yee"? please help! :scream:

Popmartijn 12-17-2004 12:41 PM

No, it's more like "test-yuh". The ending is short and vowel-less (?).

:wink:

Popmartijn 12-17-2004 12:46 PM

BTW, you're not an ignorant American. :hug:
At the very least, you wanted to know more about it, which makes you not ignorant.

:)

Ah, thanks :up:

U2democrat 12-17-2004 12:56 PM

Thanks for the explanation. It's been driving me nuts every time I read it!

U2democrat 12-17-2004 01:03 PM

Oh yeah and Popmartijn, how do you say that? Is the j silent or something? I take German so if that helps your explaining to me at all I'll understand. :shrug:

Niamh_Saoirse 12-17-2004 01:57 PM

Test-yuh?

Nope, as hard as I try, i can't pronounce that...lol

U2democrat 12-17-2004 01:58 PM

lol.

While we're on it, how do you pronounce Niamh-Saoirse? :huh:

Niamh_Saoirse 12-17-2004 02:02 PM

Niamh= Neev

Saoirse= Seersha

Or something to that effect...lol

:wink:

I pronounce testje like teste :D

and Niamh, I have a cousin Niamh who is from Dublin and I haven't seen since I was about 12 /random, in our family we all say Neeeve (like eve with an N) but I know some folk who say Nave like Navel without the L.

I have a friend called Saoirse. Sear-sha is what i say.

I have a friend called Caoimhghin. (Keevan) Not many folk can spell it. Some of my protestant friends can't say Aine, one phoned me on his first day of uni a few years ago saying he had to introduce his group for a presentation and asked how it was pronounced he thought it was Onionee, or Ann-iee. :laugh:

My Mum & Dad both pronounce Drogheda differently. My Mum takes great offence if we copy our Dad's way of saying it. :laugh:

U2democrat 12-17-2004 02:47 PM

:hmm: thanks for telling me how to pronounce those! that helps me alot. :up:

IWasBored 12-17-2004 02:48 PM

i pronounce it like testeey

but i have a feeling that if i tried to pronounce the vowel-less ending, i wouldn't be able to do it.
