how to pronounce 'Haneke'
« on: June 18, 2006, 01:34:16 PM »
okay, this has absolutely nothing to do with software or computers but i'm hoping that those around here that understand languages other than english will know how to pronounce the name:

Haneke

as in the director Michael 'Haneke' http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0359734/

is it 'han-ek' or 'han-eek' or 'han-eh-key' or 'han-er-ker', etc, etc?

as you know i have a thing about pronouncing names correctly so any 'correct' suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

thanks.

i think he's German (???) so maybe someone fluent in speaking German will have a certain answer...

thanks, jgpaiva, that sounds good to me - i think i pronounced it like that for a while and then i just thought one day "i've no idea how to do it as i've never heard anyone else say it" so i became paranoid and just stopped saying it.

My friend, Sable, in Germany, made this wav file so you can hear a real German pronouncing his name: Michael Haneke
