so how, exactly is Khorne supposed to be pronounced?

For the longest time, my dyslexic ass used to pronounce it "Krone" and I was incredibly unhappy when I was told my mistake

So please, /tg/, tell me pic isn't related

>> No.14719430

Corn.

Or at least that's how everyone I know pronounces it.

>> No.14719505

>>14719430
Pretty much this.
I like to pronounce it more K'horne to make sound more barbaric and evul.

>> No.14719564

>>14719505
You might like to pronounce it that way, but nobody else does.
It's 'corn'. Why are you upset, OP? Were you taking Warhammer seriously? A beginners mistake.

>> No.14719566

Core-n

sounds better

k'horne, like, "ka-horn"?

'cause I like that

>>14719564
well, Warhammer Fantasy seems to be considerably less "we don't really make any sort of sense so we're not going to bother" as 40k

although, the vampires from fantasy are from "Sylvania", so I guess it's not meant to be taken too seriously either

I just hate the name CORN, goddammit

why the fuck is calling him "crone" better than calling him "corn"

why is an old lady somehow a better option

At least you didn't call Tzeentch Tee-zinch

>> No.14722179

It's not Corn (hyukhyuk). You exhale as you say the kh, emphasising the 'H' and filling the word's presence with dread.

>> No.14722620

>>14722179
fills it with you not knowing how to say "corn", you mean?

>>14722114
"crone" is a far less common and, in my opinion, more menacing sounding name

My name is pronounced crone...

But you're not saying "corn" as in the plant. You're saying "khorn". It's a different sound.

My friend used to pronounce Tzeentch "Tenetzchee"
He stopped after a while, but still calls a natural 20 a "neutral 20".

What? That's not how apostrophies work. They seemlessly blend words together. You don't say "don tuh".

but I'm not sure what else he was trying to imply with the added apostrophe

it's not like adding it would somehow change what it would have been without it

How do you pronounce

"WAAAAAAAAAAAGH"

I always said Wahg, pronouncing the G. One of my friends says WAAAA

It drives me nuts... he sounds like a baby. You should hear him reading out the ork rulebooks, 'The waa this, the waa that."

>> No.14723865

>>14723821
Well, since WAAAGH is a slurred form of "war" and "war" doesn't contain anything that sounds like a "g"...

>> No.14723882

>>14723821
I don't pronounce "gh" specifically, I just let throaty noises replace the "a" noise at the end

I always assumed that's what it's supposed to be

>>14723865
The throaty sound at the end is not included when my friend says it. Just sounds like a baby crying. The throaty sound at the end is closer at least to a G.
