    The big shael debate!

    How do you pronounce it? I prefer a "Shale" sound, while my friend uses something completely different, and microsoft sam says "She-ul"

    So, how is it pronounced?

    A bit like you pronounce "right" as "raait", so I'd pronounce "Shael" as "Shaail", as I told you ingame :laugh:

    Re: The big shael debate!

    I pronounce it in my head the same way one might pronounce "Shale."

    Well, as a name, that's how it is pronounced. As a rune, I'm not sure but I see no reason for it to be pronounced differently.

    ?ael

    I'm from Romania and Sh it is pronounced ?.

    Same as Shalom pronounced ?alom.

    PS: About that ae I'm not sure though ... it seems like an e ... so it may be ?el.

    I personaly say ?ael

    Re: The big shael debate!

    I pronounce it Shael. First the sh part, then a followed by el. So sh-a-el. To me it makes sense, but maybe It's because I'm from Norway. Or because I'm weird :laugh:

    Re: The big shael debate!

    There can be only one way. It's S-J-A-I-L and no other way. Can't believe there's a debate over this :rolleyes: .

    I was surprised when somebody asked how to pronounce Shako. There were actually quite a few different possible ways.
