Pronunciations
« on: August 10, 2020, 08:59:56 am »
There are some pronunciation guides out there, but there are some language blips I'm still stuck on. The biggest being how to pronounce Yinepu! I realise this name carries its own baggage with some tug of war over Yinepu/Anpu/Anup, but I'm most concerned with how Yinepu is said. Is it Yin-AH-pu, YIN-e-pu... In-ai-bu? None of the above? If someone in the know could help me out, you'd be answering a many years old question 😅

If other beginners have other pronunciation questions, ask them here!

Em hotep!

I personally pronounce it ‘YIN-e-pu’

I found this link in the archived Ask The Nisut subforum, so I hope this helps!

I recently purchased the Egyptian Prayerbook for class and personal use, and it has a pronunciation guide that lists Yinepu as 'yi-NUHP-oo.' So I was never exactly on the mark, but at least that's been put to bed!

Adding on to this, I am happy to use the KO standard pronunciations when talking to other, because I think it's good to have a unified standard among us. But in private, I kind of want to keep using what I'm used to, just as a personal thing between me and Him. I don't know, what are others' thoughts on that?

That's really between you and Him, Kes.
There is no official stance on which version to use.
Most people here used the Greek versions first.
