How do you pronounce Tateru, anyway? Seems there are a lot of notions.
Who was close?
I got it 90% close. And I'd argue the other 10% as possible differences in accent, not actual pronunciation.
Just as I figured. Now, your last name, on the other hand...I keep wanting to pronounce it like "Niño." Yes, I am originally from Southern Cal, why do you ask? :-)
Ah, nino sounds like this.
Well I guess I'm going to have to stop pronouncing it like this.
So it has standard Japanese pronunciation... (ああ、そうですか。) And here I was pronouncing it with an "æ" vowel (much as I pronounce the name of the web browser Camino).It has a nice rhythm that way: Táteru Níno. I guess I have a soft spot for the dactyl + trochee structure.
pretty close, I've been putting more emphasis on ru
Not close in the slightest. Though I would say that the rhythm of "TATT-er-roo NEE-no" comes naturally in English. (Comes naturally to me anyway.)
So I guess "Tater Roo" is right out, huh? And, yeah, I was in the "KNEE-nyo" crowd, too. I can tell, SL voice is going to be painful for some of us.
just about exactly as I pronounce it, perhaps me being brasilian has somthing to do with it...--TigroSpottystripes Katsu
I was fairly close. I guess all that anime paid off <.<
