Pronunciation Guide

I have been asked by a couple of readers now for a pronunciation guide. I’ve never got to grips with orthography and phonemes so please forgive the crudeway I portray the sounds below. The italics indicate emphasis.

This is hardly a comprehensive list – more of a start really. No doubt I will be adding to this over the coming months.

Engalise –     En-guh-leez (or) En-guh-lee-s

Englassia –     Englace-ee-a
