    Ok, I would have posted this on UHall - but I didn't want to hear from the trammies.... Have spent the last few months talking in Vent/Mumble/etc. and was surprised to hear the way different people pronounce the names I've had in my head for years now....
    We need a consensus here.... Actually, we don't - I'm just curious.

    So how do you pronounce the following:

    Jhelom
    NuJel'm
    Stygian
    Daemon
    Lycaeum
    Punkte
    Delucia
    Papua
    Khaldun
    Ilshenar
    Yomotsu
    Homare

    I don't pronounce Homare because slutty horses don't need judgement.

    No, but if they're slutty then I reckon the name fits... Besides, there was no judgement calls in the op... Just the pronunciation... And I'm surprised you missed that, Ms PinkPerson...
    Personally, I think they're just movin' the gene line along - in whatever way suits them... :p

    I got my pronouncements from my daughter when she played. But she pronounced Paupa as Paw Paw. She talked funny in game anyway. All of her characters did. One even had a lisp.

    Way back I had a guild mate that pronounced Papua - Poo-Poo-wa. I have also heard Pap-Pow.


    This one made me chuckle!

    You're right of course, Lady Michelle, trammies do play and some of them read the Siege forum.
    I could have left that part out, and in hindsight - I probably should have. At the time I was thinking of a few of the more argumentative trammies that frequent UHall, and it was really more me not wanting to deal with them.
    So, for the trammies reading this - I rescind that comment - (I was one of you for many years prior to discovering UO the way it was meant to be played - with risk and excitement). You are more than welcome to comment or defend yourself from what was (in hindsight again) a bit of a crass comment. Or, you could certainly clone this question over on UHall if you wish (not like you need my permission anyway)...

    So, to all the many trammies reading this - I apologize for saying I didn't care to hear from you.

    Is that ok, M'Lady? ;)

    Oh, and to all of you who have taken the time to respond - thank you very much.
    When this thread falls down the board a ways, I'll see how much there is in the way of a consensus (not that it matters, this is simply a product of my overactive curiosity)...
    Thanks for helping...

    It's the safeword from Eurotrip.

    You could run into trouble if you don't commit it to memory.
