Default How to pronounce...

Hey,

I was looking for a thread that dealt with general pronunciation problems, and was unable to find one, so I thought I'd start one up. If I'm undermining the integrity of an already-thriving "pronunciation thread" that I missed, forgive me.

So go ahead and put down any words the pronunciation of which you're not sure about, or go ahead and put down words you KNOW how to pronounce which other people often get wrong. I'll start with one I know, and one I'm curious about:

1. Wort (Pronounced WERT).

2. Tun (I heard some guy say TOON, but I've always said TUHN. Which is it?)

Actually it's pronounced backwards:

NUT

depending on how many I've had, everything quickly becomes "that thing over there" as I point to it...

I say TON, as in a ton of bricks.

trub = troob
acetyl = (chemistry people) ae-see-tuhl (brew people) ass-uh-tuhl

and I've always heard tun = toon


Oh, and the W in hefeweisen is pronounced as a V.

I've always heard Mash Tun pronounced "Ton" also.

Saaz - I've always said (and heard) it as "satz" with a soft a. You dont really prounounce the "t" that hard.

I'm with you, it's like the past tense of seek with an s at the end= soughts = sotz.
Does that sound right?
