How do you pronounce....

Post by jdizzy001 »

I read through the Aihrde M&T, how do you pronounce anything in this book?! My word, I feel like I'm making all the words up. Jokes aside, how do you pronounce Aihrde? Can someone one write it phonetically please.

Is it:

Air-rid
Ire-duh
Air-duh
Eye-rd
Arrrd
Arda

A little guidance would be appreciated.

If you watch any TLG videos you'll hear Stephen pronounce it "Aird", like "dared".
The original setting was Erde, I guess pronounced the same as the current setting, though the German word spelled the same is more like "Aird-uh".

Many of the terms are Germanic. So, pronounce with a lisp. And a sprocket.

Steve actually corrected me a good many number of years ago. I was saying Air-duh. He said no, called me a dolt or some such, and said "it's prononced 'Aird'." That was back in the day before the changed the spelling on the C&C Airhde products.

About 3 miles north by northeast of Azhul, which sounds a lot like it looks. And smells. Filthy city. Pretty small and tight-knit group, though. Known through the annals for a clenching victory.
