RE: How do you Pronounce "Tulpa"

Tool-pah (not tool-pay) side here too, but this is because of language. My language spells out words exactly as they are written.

RE: How do you Pronounce "Tulpa"

Same. I don't understand the English pronounciation guides perfectly most of the time (or the tool/toll/tull things here) so I can't say for sure how I would pronounce tulpa if I had to say it in English, but closest to how it's in my language where everything's always pronounced the way it's written.

RE: How do you Pronounce "Tulpa"

I pronounce it təlpæ (based on IPA) just because that is what it looks like it should be pronounced as

Really we just need people to record audio of themselves saying it.

RE: How do you Pronounce "Tulpa"

We pronounce it like a typical Swede. "tulpan" is a word is Swedish which translates to "tulip". We use the same sound as tulpan like this: "tull-pa". Rough and stiff with no added sounds like the "h".

RE: How do you Pronounce "Tulpa"

Huh, I really couldn't think of a "ul" sound in a word, but fatal works. So yeah, "fatal" and... oh, I say "uh" not "aw".

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.
