I was right! Although I always pronounced Gralat with little "a"s so I'll have to learn how to say them properly now... Hey, how is "Knorr" pronounced? I also just say "Norr" with a silent "K" but my skill with foreign languages is less than perfect.

No, ball does not ryhme with Carl so therefore it does not rhyme with Graal. It's more like Grarl.

also in England English you speek more
words like this (like can't, bath, math
which are spelledd differnet in England English
and American English)

its funny anyway
English German

i ei
o o
u ju

German English

e a
i e
o o

Also, Germans say v as f, and w as v...

Vierzehn (14) for example is pronounced something like "fear tsain"... and zwolf (12) is pronounced like "z vohlf" or something.

They might pronounce Volkswagen (sp?) something like "folks vagen". Or something like that.

I might just be misunderstanding what my German teacher taught me, though.

It probably is supposed to be said like Grail, but that's the way I've been saying it since I started.
Gee, thanks for including me in your list of people!

Well, this is how I pronounce it. If it's wrong, I don't really care, that's how I pronounce it.

Hmm, you're halfway between Grahl and Grawl. I'd put a wav of me up but I don't trust myself not to sound like an idiot on it or something. Plus you'd all laugh at my cool English accent.

Dang, I always so late on these messages. I was gonna say what Graal meant and Stefan beat me to it. lol

BTW, Stefan, it's Olde French for Grail, right? I looked it up a long time ago, but forgot if that's what I read.

Actually, I pronounce, "Grail or however you say it"

Ex: You ever play Grail, or however you say it?
lol
