Pronounce Focke-Wulf...

Recommended Posts

In 80%, or better, of occasions when Focke-Wulf is mentioned, it is simply "fok-wulf". But there are those times when it sounds like a commentator is really straining for ultra-authentic-accent-ness, and it comes out "fok eh_wulf". My querry is: in German, is the final 'e' in 'Focke' pronounced or not? For the few times narrators opt for the last 'e', it sounds very strange.

Yes, the final "e" is a flat or short "e".

In English sounds, I would use "Fok-a Volf". Spell the "a" short/flat like in "a bad day"; and the "Volf" like "Wolf", but first letter like in "vase".

 

Dizzy? :crazy:

And that settles that. Thanks, lads. (Good example, Hasse Wind)
