1 Portuguese has a much more complicated phonetics than English & so these are especially approximate.

2 Because Giacometti was from the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland a kind of second order snobbishness has descended on the pronunciation of his name. Most people who would judge you pronounce it as you would in Italian (jah-coh-mett-ee) but an inner-inner circle insist on correcting even these people with the Swiss-Italian pronunciation listed here.

3 The pronunciation of the -ch as soft instead of hard, unlike every other instance in German, was contrived after the philosopher’s death to avoid a near-homophony with that language’s word for ‘fuck.’

4 The last syllable doesn’t have an English equivalent but rhymes with the French pronunciation of Jean’s.

5 The first letter (qaf/qof/ق) has no equivalent in English or any other Western language and is more glottal than either of the sounds starting these approximations.

More? Better phonetic versions?

and a HAPPY NEW YEAR

*hope I didn't forget anyone

ok, so firstly, let me start of by apologizing for how long this post is. i have included everyone i follow (save for the few people who haven’t updated in ages like 8 months or so) because i wanted to thank everyone who’s filled my dash with posts for the last 2 years or so. i have a lot of things to celebrate: being on tumblr for over 2 years, passing follower counts that i didn’t even think i’d ever reach, having really amazing followers and getting notes on all my crappy gifs and edits. however this post is not just for celebrating, it’s also sort of like a goodbye gift? idk, i’m thinking of taking some time away from tumblr, to focus more on school (since exams are coming soon) and life. anyway, thank u to all of these blogs ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ i’m sorry if i missed anyone, spelt a url wrong or anything, it took me so long to get all of this sorted out and alphabatized so i’m sorry if i’ve put you under a category which you don’t appreciate but u can message me and i’ll move you~

ps- i hope all the people whom i have listed as friends think of me as a friend too (╥﹏╥) also if anyone who thought that you were my friend but i haven’t put you under the friends list, i’m sorry it’s probably because i was unsure and too scared whoops

pps - italicized blogs are senpais (tbh everyone’s basically a senpai to me) - also all of the blogs listed under friends are also senpais (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

ppps- also it’s not a follow forever bc i tend to unfollow people i’ve put in my follow forever…ha ha h a
