I think it's getting confusing since we cant have any audio file to support what we are gonna say. Plus different ppl tend to use different slang right ?

I pronounce Mitsubishi as "Ma-tu-bi-shi", because if you say Mit-su-bi-shi, it doesn't sound as classy as the Matu one, and some entrepreneur told me "Ma-tu-bi-shi" was the real pronunciation. If anyone knows about this, please enlighten me.

P.S: When you say "Ma-tu-bi-shi", you have to say it fast, like pronto, and try to make a "shh" sound near a-t!

~ Pronunciations actually vary or differ if you are in a different country. I guess.

Next is Aunt:

~ They say that there are two valid pronunciations for that word. Which do you prefer? -ant- or -aant- ?

~ I also had a hard time greeting people, "Happy New Year" because of "New", I dont know why, lolz

I cannot say tragedy and personification. >.<


For tragedy, I would recommend saying "TRA-JEE-DEE" slowly and again and again, then as you become used to it, try saying tra-je-di, and I think it would be easier. For personification, say each syllable slowly and you'll be able to do that.


I thought Mitsubushi was promounced as Mis-su-bish-she. That's how it SOUNDS as if it is being said by the sponsors of the Japanese dramas I have purchased. All I DO know, is it means "three diamonds"....

you can't pronounce a word by just writing it... you need to hear it....

That's not always true. If you write out the right pronunciation, it might be easy to understand.

Um I can't think of any I'm having trouble with right now. I'll come back, maybe.
