How do you pronounce PS related things?

Postby Anza » Thu Jul 23, 2015 3:37 pm

Looooong time since I've been on this board (actually thought this was a new board and I had to reregister lol) but anyway, I'm working on a project for my youtube channel and wanted to know if there is a correct or common way to pronounce several things from the PS universe and any help would be very greatful. I'll put how I think they would be prounced but I'm unsure.

Motavia (Mo-Tah-vi-ah or Mo-ta-vi-ah)
Dezolis (De-zo-lis)
Rykros (Rhy-Kros or Rhy-cross)
Lashiec (Lash-eek)
Elsydeon (I have no freaking idea)

Thanks in advance!

Hi Anza! Long time no see!

Since Japanese is a phonetic language, there is a correct way to pronounce terms that are shared between the Japanese original and the English localisation. Someone with Japanese could further enlighten you.

I pronounce it

El-c-deon or EL-C-DION

And Myau is My-U. Thats how I like to say it. So I am Dark MY-U

And I still call him Lassic

I might be the only one in the world who doesn't, but I don't pronounce Alis and Alys the same way.

I used to think Legeon was pronounded "Leg-own". "Lee-jun" is the right pronounciation, I'm sure.

Funny fact: I always say it "MEE-OWL" like the actual sound made by a cat.

Coincidence. If you pronounce Myau like that it sounds exactly like "Maiju", which is a Finnish female name. Might be also in some other countries too.

I never see Myau again as before. :\

I may be in the minority, but I use a hard a (as in "great" rather than "ask" for both Alis and Mahlay.
