When was the last time that you heard someone
Here's a tongue twister. There's like 5 different ways to pronounce Gyarados, how do you do it?
Do you really make the Y stand out, Gya or just forget about it and go Gar or even with a soft G so Jar?
Do you end it with "dose" or dos, like the spanish two?
Everytime I hear an amerifat pronouncing it.
It makes me cringe HARD every time.
Pokiman, pokyman, pokeyman, GOD DAMN stupid fucks learn how to pronounce words! After all, only in a country of stupid fucks could exist a competition of spelling, in my country it wouldn't make sense since there would be 100 winners out of 100 partecipants.
To be fair, I didn't point out the typo. I just know bait when I see it.
The e with the mark is not easy to type out, and can be missed to the unobservant, so you see Pokemon, and don't know enough to know that it's implied.
Now, it's common knowledge that you don't pronounce it Poke-Mon, and because we know it's from a different language, pronouncing it phonetically according to english, Po-keh-mon, seems silly at first glance. So we default to what we think of, and due to protrayal of the japanese language in media, the obvious answer seems to be to pronounce a long e.
That one is new to me. I've never heard that one. But I could possibly related to the Ke phenomenon i mentioned earlier. If you try sounding out one syllable at a time, "Po" does appear like it could sound like "Paw"
Thankfully I never heard it pronounced wrong in french. We've got the é sound, heck we're probably one of a hanful languages with that sound for that specific accent.
"Mon" wouldn't be said the same way, though, but everyone except maybe old people who lived in the sewers for 20 years know you pronounce the n at the end.
Anyone remember the good old days of the anime?
"Pokuhmon, I choose you!"
