Phonetic spellings needed, please

Postby daisy » 2005-08-21, 15:34

Hi,

I would like to know, please, how to pronounce the following words:

Ligawaka
Szopkas=SHOP-kahs
Betlejki
Pierniki
Wigilia
Gwiazdka
Oplatki=oh-PWAHT-key
Oplatek
Matki Boskiej Gromniczna
Boze Rany
Zvestovanie Panie Marii
Swieconka=Shvee-en-TSON-kah
Wypominki

I've gathered some from the internet, as you can see--but they might be wrong...

I also apologize for the lengthy list--my interest is Catholic customs and traditions, and of course, there are a lot of Polish ones! :D

(By phonetic I mean--for instance, the word Hello is pronounced HELL-oh. I would like to know the phonetic spelling and the proper syllable stress, if it's not too much trouble.)

If someone could please help me, I'd be grateful.

Thanks! :D

I corrected the words and recorded them for you. I hope this will be better than writing phonetic. Now I hope that you can write it by yourself :wink: Regards. :)

Hi arti (and Qaanaaq, we meet again!),

Thank you so much for the sound files (very, very useful!) and for the phonetic pronunciations (and for correcting the spellings--all of which I got from books!). I will use them all.

Thanks again!

daisy :lol:
