Default Pronunciation thread

Asking how to pronounce 'Sakae' in another thread got me to thinking about some of the other drum company names. I'm sure there are other threads on this, but oh well, I didn't do a search, lol. I'll start with a few off the top of my head. Feel free to add others.

Taye - pronounced TIE

Tama- I've always said TOM-UH. But I've heard others say TAME-UH. What do you think?

Paiste- from studying German, I believe this to be pronounced PIE-STEE.

Ddrum - I've always said DEE-DRUM. Anyone heard it differently?

Sakae- ???

What other ones are there?

NATAL pronounced 'nerTAL' with the emphasis on the TAL part.

DUNNETT pronounced 'derNET' with the emphasis on the NET part.

Also, there's SONOR. I've always said SO-nor with the emphasis on SO.
I hear other people say it that way too but I just heard Gavin Harrison saying SOner.

Where do the "r",s come in on Natal, or Dunnett? That would be a New York accent. I hear Sonar for Sonor as well

I always said the same for those, here's what I heard and 'think" is correct for others:

Tama - Tah-mah

Paiste - Pui-stee

Sakae - Su-kui

He's probably from "Warshington" state. They add the letter R to random words.

In Philadelphia-eese, they remove letters... "He's probly from Washintin."

Paiste (pronounced Pie-Stee, the original Estonian and Finnish pronunciation is pie-ste [ˈpɑistɛ]) is a Swiss-based Estonian manufacturer and designer of cymbals. It is the world's third largest manufacturer of cymbals, gongs, and metal percussion. From Wikee

Sonor is another good one. I've always said SO-NAR (like what they use on submarines), but have heard it pronounced more like SO-NUR. Problem is I've been saying some of these a certain way for so long that it's hard to change, lol

No I'm from London. The American way of saying, for example 'nerve' or 'nurse' is different from over here. The American way is to curl the 'ner' or 'nur' and make the r more pronounced. Whereas here the r is silent and the 'er' bit sounds like the word 'a' or 'uh'.

UK and US voices here:

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/pron.../english/nurse
http://dictionary.cambridge.org/pron.../english/nerve

But for the purposes of typing on an international or mostly American forum, I think I should have spelled my phonetics more like this:

nuhTAL
duhNET

Taye I always thought was one syllable. Rhymes with Marvin Gaye. That's probably wrong.

Tama, rhymes with Mama

Sonor is So-NOR I think. Does not rhyme with donor.

Sakae...say kay? I don't know what you people expect! Maybe it's Sa-ka. Rhymes with Boom Shack-a lack-a lack-a. Not really, I just felt like writing that out.

Orillio. Like Oriole, with a long O sound tacked onto the end.

As a side note, whats up with W (double u)? Were they just being lazy when creating the alphabet? Can't come up with another name, just make it double some other letter, doesn't even matter if it doesn't make sense. Why isnt it double v? These are the things that keep me up at night. I guess I can just be glad that M is double r or whatever. Sorry to derail, just had to get this off my chest. Ill sleep like a baby tonight, you helped, thanks.

But U and W are different sounding letters. Only the names are similar. Lazy naming, there's your culprit. I think they should drop the letters X and K. X is covered by the syntax EKS and K is covered by the hard C sound. And what's the deal using Y as a vowel, like in the word rhythm? Wrong usage! Rhithm! If that was the way you learned it originally...it wouldn't look so stupid :)

Indeed, that is correct. And also in ye olde english, a long 's' shape which looks like f but without the crossbar, represented the letter s. But apparently only where there isn't a double s and not at the end of a word. It would be used like 'moft gracious'. Or, 'fonor drums' :D

I would have thought Sakae being a Japanese brand would be pronounced in the Japanese phonetic fashion, e.g. sah-kah-eh (with the kah and eh kind of run together).
Mind you, a lot of Japanese names get 'westernised' pronunciation, like toe-key-oh, instead of tor-kih-or (Tokyo).
