    I was talking to some friends today, I pronounce Hermes as "Air-MEHZ" or "Er-MEHS" (german phonics???). They kept correcting me by saying "Her-MAYS". Am I wrong? What's the correct on for Soufflot? "Suf-LOW"???
     
  2. its is "air-mehz" not airmays. You were right and soufflot is " sou-flow"
     
  3. Thank you sirenized.

    I was very embarressed cos they both corrected me! I can feel ym face heating up! Almost all my knowledgable-high-end-designer-lover life, I was very sure I've pronounced them correctly or else I will not try at all until I've confirmed the pronounciation! *phew*
     
  4. Ok to canadians .. how do we say Hermes ?
     
  5. I love the japanese way: EREMESU :p
     
  6. I would think it's the same as the US, air-mehz.

    I used to say her-mies, y'know just to be cute. But no one got it, so I stopped. Not like I talk about Hermes a lot anyway!:push:
