592RE: [KWChoir] PDFs of Pennsic 36 Program German Pronounciation primer
- Feb 24, 2007
Thanks guys. No worries. We will go over all pronunciations in rehearsal to ensure everyone is pronouncing things the same way. I feel fairly comfortable with German and the Latin.
I don't feel quite as comfortable with French. I avoided it like the plague in college to nasal sounding for me.
Is there anyone on the list who speaks french well enough to help out the ole director with the pronouciation of of Chantez a Dieu?

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) :-)
