580RE: [KWChoir] PDFs of Pennsic 36 Program German Pronounciation primer
- Feb 19, 2007Thanks, Geffrei!My choir has been singing this piece for about a year now, and that was pretty accurate except that the words beginning with S usually don't sound like an English "S", but either a "Z" or an "Sh." For example, "sein" and "sich" are pronounced "zine" (long i) and "zich" (short i, Scottish ch), while "stein," "stimmt" and "stets" are pronounced "shtine" (also long i), "shtimt" (short i) and "shtets" (short e).Arianna of Wynthrope (*not* Arianna Morgan) :-)
