Pay attention, Pierre-Luc!
I’ve been meaning to ask this for a while now but how do you pronounce the second part of Pierre-Luc’s last name? Is it pronounced like”Luke” or “look” or something else?ive been reading it sounding like “Luke.”
I meant the second part of his first name.
It’s hard to explain because it’s a sound that doesn’t exist in English, but it’s the French equivalent of Luke; kinda like “leu-k”?
If you speak American or Canadian English, you can form the sound the u makes (the IPA y sound) by making your lips round like you’re going to pronounce “ooh”, but then voicing a long e (like in “see”).
It ends up sort of kind of like an “iu” sound if the i is almost completely unpronounced but still impacts the u.
Does that mean it sounds like cuke, short for cucumber? That also has a sound resembling cyuk.
It’s pronounced l-u-k
Oups, correction, l-y-k.
I guess Trekkies know how to speak the name :-)
In Germany we have the “ü” for that sound =)
