Hey everyone, I was just wondering how you pronounce:

Elysiun

Supercalifragilisticexpelidocious :smiley:

Okay, okay, only Elysiun.


(Haunted-House) #2

I believe it is pronounced: El-e-s-e-un


(IMProvisar) #3

I pronounce it (in my head) “el is see’ un” rather than “el ee’ see un”.

well I always pronounce it:

E li si un

If anyobody has the movie the gladiator, you can here the lead actor say elysium (pronounced the same) right before the first battle (if I’m not mistaking).

that’s right kib. something like: “and if you find yoursef walking in endless fields do not worry, for you are walking in the fields of elysiun… and you’re already dead!” i don’t know if i have that exactly right, haven’t seen the movie lately and have only memory to go by.

Just in case you are interested and since Elysiun stands for “Elysiun fields” the Greek “Paradise for Heroes” we pronounce it like this:

I-li-ssia Pe-thi-a (meaning Elysiun Fields…)

bye…

If anyobody has the movie the gladiator, you can here the lead actor say elysium (pronounced the same) right before the first battle (if I’m not mistaking).

Oh come on, kib. don’t you know the main actor of gladiator’s name?! Its tom cruise… no wait arnold shwartzenager… or is it george bush? I remember!!! It’s Ruffled Crow. :-? :o The guy with a beautiful brain.

Elysiun always makes me think of the Megadeth song “Elysiun Fields”. :slight_smile:
So I pronounce it the same way Dave Mustaine does in the song, el-ee-shun
…sort-of

Ok… let’s spice up the debate a bit more… why is the ‘y’ capitalized in elYsiun? Is it just to match the black/orange graphic, or another reason?

it’s because elYsiun looks so much cooler than elysiun or Elysiun, so basicly it was just a design choise we made when we created the first elYsiun logo. And ofcourse the same aspect got trough in the 2nd logo.

You can see the old logo here btw:

and

Hoorah!!

Watching TV last night and UK TV cook Rick Stein mentioned Elysiun fields and he pronounced it El-iss-ee-un

To the question “how do you pronounce elYsiun?” I answer:

I don´t. I just hope that noone will ask me how I pronounce it :o . :wink:


(RipSting) #19

I gave you a wrong word, the right one is: “epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyydellänsäkään”

järjestelmällistämättömyydelläänsäkäänköhän is tied with epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyydellänsäkään for the longest Finnish word actually. :slight_smile:

Well, check this out. I live in Hawaii, and this is the name of the state fish:

Humuhumu-nukunuku-a-pua’a

Hehe… the common name is longer and tougher to pronounce than the genus-species scientific name, Rhinecanthus rectangulus.
