|Exact pronunciation for Italian names||Matteo|
Sep 8, 2002 5:54 AM
a few weeks ago some of you asked about the exact pronunciation for Italian names, like Colnago, Campagnolo, Ghisallo, etc.
If you're still interested, I could record an Mp3 file with those names (I'm Italian, so you could trust my pronunciation...)
Someone then should post the file (which is gonna be actually very small) on his website because I don't have one.
Please let me know.
Ciao to all,

|That would be cool! I've always wondered how to pronounce Ciussi (I've heard it pronounced several ways), also Giro (is it pronounced gyro or hero in Italian). Anyway, a mp3 would be cool. Jeff|

|I'm pretty sure we could start a Yahoo Group (Italian_For_Cyclists?) where it could be hosted for free. Not like these files are huge and there would be a large volume of traffic. I'd be willing to set it up if you can get the MP3 files to me. A WAV file would be fine too for something that short in length. My email should be available through my profile (click the head) or the email button.|

|. . .so Matteo doesn't have to weed out duplicates. I searched the RBR archives and pulled out a copy of Ciclismo to brain storm. I've got 35 so far, pretty much cycling terms and Italian bicycle and component manufacuters. I know I'm missing so though so reply with your addition(s) in the Subject line. If you have a bunch, then put them in the body of the post and make a comment as to such in the subject line. I included some of the most famous Italian cyclists (all time and current) but this might be a little much. My list starts in the reply to this email.
Note: Matteo, we'll probably need your help in spelling and accents with this list.
PLEASE DON'T POST GENERAL REPLIES BELOW HERE SO AS TO KEEP CONFUSION DOWN!!! THAT IS, DON'T CLICK REPLY TO THIS POST UNLESS YOU'RE ADDING NEW WORDS!!!
