there is a running debate in my club about how you prounouce tzeentch, is it
1.tizeench (mine, thus the right choice)
does it actually mention this anywhere in anything GW, cause it would really help.
P.S. i know this is twice in a row, but could a mod make this a poll please
I pronounce three morphems:
The first is like a "t" and a "z" put together. The second is like the vowel in "be". The "ch" like "child' or any other normal "ch".
So the first sound is a mix of a voiceless alveolar plosive and a voiced alveolar fricative.
The vowel is a high front closed vowel.
The "ch" is a voiceless alveolar affricative that is not on the chart. But it's a mix of a voiceless palatal plosive and a palatal fricative.
The 2nd bottom one.

Chaos Marines (3000)
I know, this is a tough one :huh: I say "ts (as in "hits")-eench" but I have heard "sench", "zench" and my mate says "zen-ich"
I say it like t ( as in tattle) and then zeench
I say "Thousand Sons."

I avoid saying it as much as possible, but if I do I pronounce it zeench or something, with an emphasis on the Z, or just say the T one.
Back from a long adventure.
The best way to descriobe how I pronounce it is this:
say "hits each"
say it quickly
don't say the "hi"
add an "n" becore the ch

Nah, he's using linguistics jargon.Originally Posted by JustikarYuri
Tones, I don't think the average person on this (or any other forum) has studied linguistics at a university level. You might want to explain what you mean in a less elitist way?
