Please help. I'm a fucking idiot and don't know how to pronounce things.

It's a fucking good thing I don't know too many people outside of the internet who like the same bands as I do, because I don't know how to fucking say their names. But should the opportunity arise, I would like to at least be able to

How do you pronounce the following band/people names:



La Quiete

Hassan I Sabbah


Spencer Seim (I'm good on's the other part)


AmpereDaïtroLa quieteHassan I SabbahRaeinSpencer SeimHellaThe Advantage

    haha, i was actually thinking about this the other day. i have absolutely no idea how to pronounce a small percentage of the bands i listen to. i can confidently confirm that: raein = rain daïtro = day-tro the others - not so sure. i would also really like to know the proper pronunciation of la quiete.

    yes, 'laquiete' in italian is something like 'kwete'. :)

    Er, staticparade is right, it's like Lah key-ette. Also, Daïtro should sound like Dah-ee-tro (caused by the double-point above the 'i'), or at least Die-tro. Nothing with day, since it's French and not English. Further, Amm-peer and simply Rain are right. That's it. Today's lesson on screamo language is over

    ur right khanatist ... but the pronounciation of la Quiete is wrong ^^ ... ... - the last e isnt spoken ... ...

  • Khanatist

    Oh, of course, I thought that was clear as words like Netiquette also have the unspoken 'e' at the end

    hey men, you're all wrong! it is something like 'la kwete', and also the last 'e' is spoken... i'm italian, trust me ;)

    Some guy who sold their merchandise at one of their shows pronounced it differently, that should count more than your nationality :P

    i don't think so... if you create a group with a word from your mother language (i dont know german, the only words i know is 'streben' and 'sehnsucht' :), i think that you want to be called in the way your mother language sound... in italy maybe you will be called simply 'streben', while the really pronounce of the name of your group would be spelled rightly only by germans and all who really knows german language (something like 'schtreben', no? :) ). So i think it's quite stupid to give to a group an italian name and then pronounce it as it would be an american word, don't u think so?

    Hassan-I-Sabbah is an American band, but if you want to pronounce it in a way similar to the Arabic words, it's ah-SUHN EE sah-BAH
