Yes it is. And Steve described the pronunciation as does the wiki article you linked.

Not sure if I would trust CCP for pronunciation advice since all the CCP employees that said the word Chimera at the last Fanfest pronounced it wrong.


To a certain extent, you are right. But that is when a person from Iceland does a western or greek word. I woul not ask them for that pronunciation.

But Svipul, Nagalfar, them I will ask someone whose native tongue is related to or rooted with the same linguistics.

Whilst we're on this topic, mind enlightening me as to how to pronounce the Gallente logi ships? I think that I can get the T2 one reasonably correct, but I seem to invariably pronounce the Exequror as either "Ex-checker" (when not drinking) or "Egg-checker" after a middie or two.

Sounds like you're trying to say "Exchequer"

Exequror would be pronounced 'EXEcuror'. 'exec' like in executive, and it rhymes with juror.

Nugoeihuvi (uhhhhh. NOH. That's it. )



It's actually a composite of three words:

Nug - Play
Oei - Relax
Huvi - Enjoy

Once you break it down it's much easier to pronounce!

[nugg][oay][huuvee]


Considering a lot of the Caldari names sound like Japanese or Finnish taking that perspective makes this really easy.

Nu - go - ei - hu - vi

Nothing is silent, every letter is voiced.

PS. 'Huvi' is an actual Finnish word, in English it is 'entertainment', 'pleasure', 'fun'.
