Please will you listen to this to hear it said?an excuse for 2 points?

Earlier I mentioned Jacques, and I do not think everyone actually understands the phonetic

So, can you please just listen to this saying it.

It is SUPER short and does not take long to load.Does not use a lot of bandwith

It is excuse for getting 2 points

The first Phonetic Pronunciation is the traditionally correct phrase



this place will also say it

Update 2:

Because I actually know of someone who is named Jacques and THEIR MOTHER CANNOT say their own name

It looks horrible- people think his mother is stupid

Also, I am tired of always having to correct people when I write the name.

You should be thanking me for giving you an excuse to get 2 point

If books, websites and linguistic services all say it is not Jack-eez then you are wrong

I believe in name pronunciation differing in different countries, but this one is just APPALING

Update 3:

Pardon, I do not know them, I know of them

Would you argue with a person who is Russian telling you that you are mispronouncing their name -no

This name is REALLY popular where I live, I know what I am talking about

Thank you everyone who answers or listens to the link

    Oh m an. This name reminds me of my English teacher every time.

    We were punctuating a sentence about Jacques Cousteau, and she managed to pronounce his name "jack-weez cuh-STOO".

    She pronounces most things wrong, though (basically anything longer than 2 syllables), and really, really shouldn't be an english teacher. They required her to do it because they needed someone for the job, and she was hired as the "Teen Living" teacher (basically a home ec class).

    I had a kitten named Jacques in the past. I would call him "jack-wez" just as a nickname. I was aware of its pronunciation, but everyone would pronounce it that way anyway... so I just nicknamed him that somewhat.

    Anyway, enough rambling from me.

  • that's my brothers name but so many people have mispronounced it over the years that we just call him Jack now, but ive hear everything from Jakes, Jack-es, jack-kwh

    why would i waste space on my computer to hear a name be pronounced?

    and why would someone actually go that far about a name pronounciation- get over it.

    edit: i don't think the english alphabet can be used to properly pronounce it. need accents n stuff.
