Am I the only one that used to pronounce it as Ar-Dog-Knee?

 

I did find out its proper pronounciation quite a few years back now though.

Thats how I've always pronounced it.

 

Although Karamja.

 

I always pronounced as Karajama lol

I think I might be the only person that pronounces it "Ar-down", with the "own" being pronounced like "own" as in "to own something".

 

As for the quest, I really want to see the in-game models of (spoilers):

I think of it that way too, your not the only one :P.

My guess: super hard penguin that gives 3 points upon spotting and teleports all over the place or something wacky like that. Ooh, how about a ghost penguin that can only be seen with the ring of visibility? Not likely, but that would be pretty neat.

I prefer "Ar-dough", it sounds french and the french always have weird spelling for simple to pronounce words.

Back when I was a free-to-peon I used to think it was...

Karjama

Travelry

Drayanor

Digeste

...but that was a matter of misspelling, really.

 

I honestly thought a "Travelry" was some kind of camp made by nomads who "travel" a lot. Also, I didn't realize it was a "dig site", I just thought Digeste (pronounced like "digest" with an e at the end) was some kind of foreign name.

 

P.S. When did this thread turn into "Pronunciation discussion general"?

Yeah, I originally thought Ard-gun (and Al-KHAR-id, not Al-khar-EED, and Burth-up, not Bur-thorpe).

 

 

 

P.S. When did this thread turn into "Pronunciation discussion general"?

 

When they released a BtS video that included pronouncing Ardougne. :P

Obtained quest cape and base 92 before obtaining any 99s! Currently finishing out my 99s with the (long-distant) goal of comp cape.

Because we happened to get on to the topic and it is kind of an interesting topic to see how people actually pronounce things compared to the official pronunciation.

I was crushed when I found out all of these:

 

Karamja was not Karmaja

Taverly was not Traverly

Al-Kharid was not Al-Kaharid

Ar-doug-ne was not A-druj-in(Almost sounded like Rocky shouting Adrian! but with a J in the middle)

 

Still not sure if these are right, but at this point(8? Years later), I don't care:

 

Neitiznot = Nee-itz-not

Jatizso = Jayts-zo

Yanille = Yah-nill(The Yah is like a Jamaican saying Yah, Man!)

Pollnivneach = Poll-vee-neech

Morytania = Mor-tane-ya

Port Phasmatys = Port Fast-Miss

Fremennik = Frem-nick

Tai Bwo Wannai = Tae Bo Wanna

 

Also, looking at the map I just noticed it's Fenkenstrain, I always just assumed it was Frankenstein and never looked that hard at it.. lol

Thx to MxM for parts of the sig!

Not going to look them up right now, but off the top of my head:

 

Neitiznot - Nay-tiz-not

Jatizso - Yah-tiz-so

Pollnivneach - Poll-niv-knee-itch

Morytania - More-ee-tan-ee-ah

Port Phasmatys - Port Phas-matt-ee's

Fremennik - Frem-en-ick

The Carnilean quest looks promising. Enjoyed that other quest i did years ago involving their family. Other than that, the rest looks useless.

Wow, people who mispronounce Neitiznot and Jatizso missed a huge part of the lore (Nay it is not/Ya 'tis so) ;/

 

It makes me mad when people say these wrong. They clearly weren't paying attention in the quest.
