On the way back from JNB, I came across this article about SAYING IT RIGHT.. There're 17 names (most of them are the brand name of luxury names) being outlined & those names are often pronounced wrongly.(aku pun sama la..). But,the names are in Italian, Spanish or French so they can't expect us to expert their mother-tongue language,as much as they don't speak our language correctly. Fair what???But of course, it is a great thing by knowing how to pronounce it right in case we are in the middle of so-called 'rich & famous' crowd.. At least,orang kata,kalau tak pakai pun tahu sebut jadi lah....hehehe.(Follow this, you will be surprise!!)
On the left is the word & on the right is its pronounciation.
