I despise the Thaylen names when it comes to pronunciations. How am I supposed to say Ym? There's no storming vowels!

Isn’t Ym Iri?

Y acts as a vowel under certain circumstances.

Pet peeve, since Brandon says he based horneater language on Polynesian languages.  It would be

Noo-moo hoo-koo mah-kee ah-kee EYE-ah loon-ah more

The 'ai' diphthong in Polynesian languages is pronounced like the word "eye", not like the letter A.

Edit: Also, the Polynesian languages I'm familiar with, all the words end with vowels.  And the Rs are lightly rolled.  So, an R at the end is weird.

This isn't a name but I pronounce WOB wee-oh-bee.

I know that's wrong but I can't stop thinking it.

I already do it like that.

The only correct way to pronounce Kaladin is with this intonation

Good!

Brandon says it ". . . AY-ah loon-ah more."  AY rhyming with hay.

And in his last live-stream, Isaac had a go, and pronounced each vowel separately.  Something like "ah-ee-ah loon-ah moor" which is definitely wrong.

*This is assuming that Brandon actually intends Horneater to follow the pronunciation rules of Polynesian languages.

this thread hurts me

but this is important

SUH-REE-NEE

If these people pronounce it like that, why not write "Sarini"?  I would suggest to pronounce the "e"s like in "bet".

I'm pretty sure canonically all vowels are hard in Elantris. So A as in say, E as in green, I pronounced 'eye', O as in go, and U pronounced 'you'

They are always hard vowels when part of an aon, otherwise they could be hard or soft.

also there is no i in eye

Aons like Ien, Kae, Kie, Nae & Mae make me doubt that extremely.

Furthermore "u" is not found in Aons. That suggests that the language collapsed /u/ and /o/. All in all it looks like Aons need to be pronounced like they were Spanish or Italian.

Maybe it doesn't exist to spare everyone from the explosions these arguments will cause :P 

Sha-len 

A-da-lin (take it or leave it)

Aa-muh-ram

Ren-uh-rin

Say-zed

Yahs-nuh 

And I think I'm the only person in the history of the cosmere to do this, but Mohsh. One syllable. No Moh-ash for me.

 

(Emphasis on the bolded part)

Sha (same vowel sound as land) lin (as in Lin-Manuel Miranda)

A (same vowel sound as land again) do (like dough) lin (as in Lin-Manuel Miranda)

A (same vowel sound as land) muh (like much without the ch) ram (as in ram into a wall)

Ren (same vowel sound as end) ar (like how you would pronounce the letter r) in.

Saw-zed

Yas (same vowel sound as log) nuh

I ALSO SAY MOHSH ONE SYLLABLE YES!!!!!!!!

I personally think that Rlain is pronounced rhayn with rh being a uvular trill (similar to the dutch g sound)

Seeing the phonetic charts for the languages would be useful though.
