Y = like Y (ellow) or Y (oung)

and not as if it was at the end of the word like "misery"

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.'

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

There is no stress in French words.

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

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