>how do you pronounce Matthes?


Take the name 'Matt' and 'es' as in 'escape', and pronounce it as one word without hesitating between the two parts.

> Matt


That would be pronounced "M├Ątt" which is wrong. Say 'Mutt' + es from escape.

Ah, no, that's the german pronunciation:) You would usually pronounce 'Matt' like the german 'matt' (from chess) in the UK or over in America (although the 'm' is more emphasized in the name).

Well, I don't know if the name Matt is pronounced differently from the word matt (hearing example on the left) but from my experience so far, I doubt it. However, maybe a mother-tongue speaker will correct me.

And here I've been pronouncing it "Mathus" this whole time.

And doesn't the top half of this thread or so have nothing to do with the pronunciation of Matthes?

And I'm sketchy about having this in the Off-Topic section at all. It's still clonk-related, really.

Yeah, now my translation is buried in a moved branch :(
Parent - - By B_E [de] Date 2011-11-29 09:58
You could always move the branch!
Parent - By PeterW [gb] Date 2011-11-29 12:47
Well, I would, if I could. But in fact I can't ;(

That will teach you a lesson to answer to Fluff's posts... :-P
