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 bag, 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 hut, 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.
