How do you pronounce?


Recommended Posts

I have heard other people pronounce tama names. I tried to sound them out as good as I can. I pronounce it like they do on lets go tamagotchi english. I used Mametchi as a example, there are way more names I could of used.

Ma me tchi

 

When written in Romaji, each letter has the same pronounciation in every occurance. (Unlike English where the pronounciation of letters depends on their location in a word, and other letters on either side of them.)

A: is pronounced the same as the each a in banana.

I: is the same as the i in ski (down-hill sport on snow).

U: is similar to, but not quite as long as, the double o sound in moon.

E: is as the e in net.

O: as in no (opposite of yes).

G: as in go.

Y: as in yellow.

 

Most Japanese characters consist of a consonant sound and vowel sound together (such as "ma", "me", "tchi".) The only exceptions are the vowels "a", "i", "u", "e", and "o", which can be alone, and the consonant "n" can be alone (as in "pa" "n" "da".)

 

The i on the end of "shi", "chi", and "tchi" when occurring at the very end of a Japanese word, is sometimes silent, in casual conversation.

 

Note: Bandai has embeded English words in some Tamagotchi character names. You can't use the Romaji rules of pronounciation for these names. Example: Maidtchi is English "Maid" and Japanese "tchi"

Tamagotchi names give me headaches. I can never remember which one goes with what charecter, or how it's pronounced or whatever.

I always get confused with Memetchi and Mametchi. I know its pronounced ma-me-tchi but I always say "ma-mat-chi" (which sounds lame) because my brother says it. And Memetchi is pronounced Meh-meh-tchi... I think.

And Fuwatchi (the japanese name for Flowertchi/Violetchi) is pronounced "foo-what-chi"

 

But I cannot prononce Kunoitchi. Is it "ku-ny-chi" or "ku-noy-chi" or what???

My sis also gets confuzzled with Mamethi and Memetchi. So she calls Mametchi "that blue-eared thing". :D
