    While we're at it, how is Isaia pronounced? Is the "ai" like an "a" or an "i"?

    Eyes 'igher, as in: 'My dog's called Isaia' 'Why's that' 'Because one eye's 'igher than the other.' [​IMG]

    I think you have to be from Massachusetts or a Kennedy to pronounce it like that.

    Ernest, I do not mean a Germanic stress or the like...

    Are you saying that Dormeuil is pronounced the same as Dorm-oiel?
