Pronunciation

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 Flammeus 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.
