Such a debatable subject, here's how i pronounce them :P



Lumbridge - Lum-Bridge

Varrock - Varr-ock

Falador - Fa-la-dor

Port Phasmatys - Port Fas-ma-tees

Ardounge - Ar-Doyn (I used to pronounce it other until the quest said it was Ardoin)

Tiranwnn - Tie-ran (Tricky one, i've always thought the w to be silent.)

Lletya - Le-Leet-ya

Piscatoris Fishing colony - Pee-sca-tor-is

Trollheim - Troll-hime

Burthrope - Bur-thorp



That's what i've always called them by except Ardougne, i used to call it "Ar-doo-gun" until that quest came out and changed it! #-o

Just to say, you guys are giving different answers than you probably mean. if you dont show us which place you accent it, we dont know how you pronounce it. if you just repeat the word, you're not telling us anything- for example, Lumbridge can be pronounced in these ways: LUHM-brij, luhm-BRIJ, LUHM-brAIj, LOOM-brij, LOOM-brAIj, loom-BRIJ.



oh, yeah, thats a lot. so we don't know what you're trying to say if you speak to vagely. I suggest you read the first post thuroughly if you wish to contribute in a good way.
