Today's Lesson

Today's Lesson

It's possibly not the best idea to choose a family with a very difficult-to-pronounce name as the subject of a conference paper. You may now laugh at my discomfort. I will be practicing while re-writing.

ETA: And no, even if I Anglicize the name, it's not an easy one. Give me that Bavarian ducal family any time. Their name, I can pronounce.

This must be the equivalent to a musician playing a piece by Bitsh. We have to practice saying that with a straight face. :)

Stright face is no problem ... it's the fact that this is five hugely guttural syllabals (I cannot spell this morning) that would be fine, were I speaking German, but the switching back and forth is a bitsch!
