??!? HOW TO PRONOUNCE BRAND NAMES CORRECTLY ?!??
Not only Writing, Speaking, and Reading (ALL?)
Another problem I'm facing at the moment is Pronounciation.
(Leave alone the Eng Accent,
I probably have to committed suicide and ask god to re-birth in UK
specificly for my next life)
This is very difficult for me when I can't find the brands I like
then I have to ask a sales person.
Can you imagine a Thai girl who can't even speak English properly,
trying to say something sounds French/Italian?
It's very embarrassing, IT IS!
When you are a big fan of some designers but can't even say their brands correctly >_<
Here we are.....
I SPENT A NIGHT SEARCHING ON GOOGLE
Then I found this one, the blogger posted this entry on his blogspot.
Not sure if all is correct but hope it helps for you guys
who wonder how to (kind of) say them, anyway.
Comme des garcons : Comb day gar-SON
Bvlgari : Bu-gar-ee
Yves Saint Lauren(YSL) : Eve - San - Lor-ron
eau de toilette : oh deh twa LETT
Mont Blanc : mawnt blahnk
Chanel : Shah-nell
Louis Vuitton : Vuitton is 'Vwee-ton' or 'Voo-ton'.
Gucci : Goo-Chee
Nike : Nike, (pronounced 'nye-kee')was the name of a Greek goddess. (Godess of victory.)Nike shoes are named 'Nike' to suggest that wearing them will make the wearer 'win' more, be more 'victorious
Stussy : say fuzzy .. now instead of f in the front pronounce st.. and don't make the zz so hard just an sssss like a snake.. sstttuuusssyyyy
Kerastase : Kair-a-staz
Bang & Olufsen : Ban-o-ulu-sen
Lacoste : La-cost
Lancôme : Lon-com-e
Chevrolet : Shev-row-lay
Porsche : Porsche is pronounced porsh ("pour" with an "sh" on the end) or por-sha ("pour" with the "shu" from the word "shut" on the end).
Versace : vur-SAH-chee. Italians are more likely to say vair-SAH-chay
Burberry : BUR-bur-ee (not Bur-berry)
I didn't write this one down by myself,
Can't guarantee they are correct.
But at least, it's useful to have a guideline, isn't it?
Please add some more if you would like to share :)
P.S. Happy Valentine's day & Being loved & In love EVERY DAY na ka
