Basically just say how you pronounce the names of ruenscape cities and towns. To give you an overview of which ones would be nice to know how you pronounce, here is a list of most of them which I think some people would give some funny pronounciations to them

( NOTE: I do not know the correct spellings for all of the cities and towns of runescape- but hopefully you know which ones I'm referring to.) :



Lumbridge:

Varrock:

Falador:

Port Phasmatys:

Ardounge:

Tiranwnn:

Lyetta:

Picatoris Fishing colony:

Trollheim:

Burthrope:

Canifis:

Karamja:







Now I'll give my pronounciations. Just to make it clear, separate each syllable with a - and for teh syllables in which you accent, put it in CAPITALS.



LUHM-bridge

Varr-OCK

FA-la-dor

Port Phas-MA-tys

Ard-O-nge



TIH-ra-win (exception- Tiranwnn is the correct spelling, but makes no sence in english. jsut show us how you pronounce it for these)



Ly-ET-ta

Pi-CA-stris Fishing colony

TROHLl-heim

BU-rth-rope

Can-IF-is

Kar-AHM-jah



If you have any other names of cities/towns, post them! We want to know!



update: the letter H should be very useful for giving your pronounciations; remember that you don't have to put in the exact spelling of the city when you're pronoucing it.

In the quest Meeting History we were shown that the first people on runescape pronounce Ardougne as Ardoin, when your char asked where Ardougne is. For the rest, there have been plenty of these threads.

Just a reminder, remember to capitalize teh syllables that you accent. We basically can't tell how you pronounce them if you dont show us where you accent it.

Most of my pronunciations are wrong spellings of how they should be spelt, like Tiarnwnn losing one of it's N's. But once you get into habit you just gotta say it like that :P
