People & Places

Many readers have asked me to include a guide to pronouncing the names and places in The Emberjar series. So, here is a list of names and places from The Orange of Kashiq and their pronunciation.
 Notes on pronunciation: Vowels are pronounced as follows 
 A- short, as in b
ag, not as in hay 
E- short, as in
egg, not as in eve
 I- short, as in fin, not as in fine
 O- short, as in boss, not as in lone 
U-short, as in h
ut, not as in lute
 Consonants are always pronounced hard e.g
 G is pronounced as in Gold not as in Gel 
 
C is pronounced as in Class not as in Ace 
 
CH is pronounced hard as if lock, not loch
The syllable to be emphasised is underlined.
