Pronouncing my name

How to pronounce my name?

A recurring puzzle for many is what is the right pronounciation of my name. Here are a couple of cues:
  • "Csaba" sounds like (maybe) "Chaaba" (just shorten the first vowel), or phonetically as "tʃ ɔ b ɔ"
  • "Szepesvári" sounds like "Sapaashvari", or phonetically as "s ɛ p ɛ ʃ v ɑ r ɪ"
Pronounciation rules of Hungarian are actually quite simple. One secret is that "cs" and "sz" denote single sounds. To find out more about the Hungarian pronounciation rules check out this page.
