    Call me pedantic … and many do 😉 … but personally I’d go for:
    bear-un-ouse-ley-seh
    trocken-bear-un-ouse-ley-seh
    shpate-boorg-oonder
    geh-vuertz-trah-mee-ner

  2. Okay, so how do we pronounce, “Naoussa?”

    Difficult exercise by Lucy Jenkins, I guess…

    Try to type in Bourgeuil in Google Translate, make sure you translate from French, click on the audio button, and you’ll get the right sound.

    Not being a native English speaker, I am not sure how to pronounce “bor-guhy”… so I typed it in Google Translate, picked English, then clicked on the audio button…. and had a good laugh!

    Where has the phonetic alphabet gone? Not taught in schools anymore, oh well, thanks to Google Translate, there is no need for it anymore!

    Merci Lucy (for the good laugh!)
