With The Artist winning Best Score at the Oscars, I thought I could get help with the composer's name. Watching the Oscars might not have been any help, because they seem to butcher the composer's name at times!
Is Ludovic Bource pronounced 'Lud-o-vic Borse' in English? I say his last name like it rhymes with 'horse'.
Bumping this thread back up to the top because I really need some assistance with...
Thanks in advance,
Vuh-roo-JUHN Ko-jee-YAAN, to my knowledge. Or in IPA: varu'?an k???'an.
Söderqvist is difficult to transcribe: The "ö" is almost like the "u" in "hurt", but less 'twisted'. You speak it with pointed lips (weird analogy, I know). So: YOO-haan SOE-dehr-kveest (the last syllable being short), with "YOO" being half-way between "you" and "yo".
I verified with the IPA...Kojian is Armenian, so the stresses should go on the last syllables of both first and last names. Sorry, I'm nearly-perfectionist with these things. I've edited my reply to you accordingly.
Has Ennio Morricone been clarified? I've heard the first name is IN-ee-oh. The last name I've always pronounced More-ih-koe-nee, like it's spelled, but I probably say it wrong.
yeah a bit wrong ! Because you pronounce it in English !
It`s En-ee-o Mori-cou-ne ("Mori" and "ne" are short speaken)
Not exactly. Both his first and last name contain a double consonant. In Italian phonetics the double consonant have actually twice the length of single consonant (they have practically a stronger sound).
So it sounds like E/nn/ee-o Mo/rr/ee-coo-ne
No single "o" in the Italian language is sounded as "oo"
It's "oh" -- Or EN/yo MOR/ee/COE/nee. Don't worry about the "i" in Ennio...Italians normally sound out the "nio" as "nyo" rather than as "ee/oh".
