Serpent's hauberk pronunciation

Post by Flaming » Sat Mar 08, 2014 2:01 pm

When ever I try to pronounce Serpents hauberk it always comes out as I mixture of serpents halibut and serpents hammock. :P

It is the hardest thing to say in the game apart from names. :lol:

It's always amusing during the Developer Meetings when we talk about places in the game.... sometimes the names don't register in my head unless they are written down. =)

Happy Hunting!

Hawberk does it for me.

That's the nearest I can get without resorting to dictionary style phonetics - which I wouldn't know how to do anyway. :D

In English, I've only ever heard it pronounced

haw'-bərk

I assume it was borrowed from another language (French?) with a different pronunciation/spelling. E.g. in French the "au" would be more like a long O in English.

It's a bit of a mongrel, like so many words in the English language.

Haw-burk for me too. But, as with many words, English and American (and other) pronunciations probably vary.
