Names and Pronunciation posted 11 June 2004 in The Darkness That Comes BeforeNames and Pronunciation by The Consult, Candidate

Hi all <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Just thought i'd remark on the rather complex names and pronunciation in TDTCB. I don't think all the hard names are really necessary, and they make the book slightly more difficult to read...

Don't get me wrong, it takes nothing at all away from the story (which is incidentally one of the best i've read:D) but i just find it rather annoying sometimes...having to stop mid-sentence to try and work out the pronunciation. I think my main problem is not be able to understand all the symbols above the vowels....

What do you all think?

Oh, and feel free to explain the pronunciation of some of the harder names if you will <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post
