comment How do I pronounce Gaudí, the architect?
I like this tip about using YouTube to know the pronounciation of difficult/foreign words & names. "Go to YouTube.com and search for any word followed by ',cc' – this is a YouTube search operator that will only show videos that have closed captions. Example - Eyjafjallajokull, cc [YouTube search for videos with closed captions]. In YouTube search results, pick a video that has that particular word in the transcript. Then click the transcript button and jump to the line containing that word."
