Okay, so I'm new here, and am not sure if this topic has been brought up yet, so I'll start it. What are the worst pronunciations you've heard from people talking about Les Misérables? I get really irritated when my friends mispronounce names, places, and even the very title. Something about it just really bugs me. Well, here's a list of some of the worst I've ever heard.
(The stresses are on the capital letters, and I've tried to make spell them like they sound.)
The Misérables - No French accent, just a VERY strong American accent.
Les Miserablehhhhhhh - Do the right pronunciation in moderation. Don't go overboard.
Epo-Nyne - Said in a really strong country accent. Ugh. This one bugs me so much.
Shawn-ValShawn - His name is Jean Valjean! He tells you so several times! (A lot of singers say it like this in the musical, so I hear this one a lot.)
JavArT - So many stresses...this is another one I hate. These people really stress that "T".
AnjolRayse - Okay, so a lot of people mess this one up, and it's understandable...it's a difficult name. However, someone this hot should NOT have their name so badly butchered so often.
MariOOs - Another of my dreaded pronunciations. This one is unforgivable...his name is pronounced exactly like it is spelled!
FanTyne - People often say the "Fan" part as in an electric "fan" and that really irritates me.
Faux-Lilly - This one is often extremely butchered, because people are to ignorant to realize that Feuilly doesn't even look like it would sound like a brand of silk flowers. So emasculating.
Well, that's my little list...I'd love to hear the worst that ya'll have ever heard. Especially places...I haven't even started on those yet.
Sir, the type of women currently favored in France are toothless crones who just cackle insanely.
