Read nicknames right.
« on: December 28, 2018, 15:20 »
How do you read "Dequ"? "De" is like "the", but "d" instead of "th"? Or "dee"? "qu" like "koo" or "kew"? Da-koo? Dick-you?
"Wichura" - vee-hoo-ruh? "Wi" like in "we", "chu" like "hoo" in "hooligan", "ra" like "ru" in "run"?
"Wesan" - "We" like "Ve" in "Vegan" or Vi like "we"? "san" like "sun" or "sen"?
Also what syllable is stressed in all these names? DE-qu or de-QU? wi-chu-RA? WE-san?

It's pronounced ja-koo. "Ja" like "ja" in "jazz", "koo" like "coo" in "cool".

It's [vee-who-ra], with clear R.
Normally in Polish you stress the second syllable from the end of word. With some words you can stress the third one to sound more posh and fancy.

Coz the op speaks russian it's:

дэку
вихура
вэсан

or IPA:

/dɛku/
/vixura/
/vesan/

all vowels are short here so there isnt really an audible stress on any syllables.
