I asked this question in the IRC chat and I just think it's interesting. I also wonder if pronunciation influences the "Tulpas" vs. "Tulpae" debate or at least makes either side sound off or even sillier!

 

I found some (but not much) on the subject matter:

Happy Halloween!

I sometimes speak in pink and Ranger sometimes speaks in blue (if it's unmarked and colored assume it's Ranger). He loves to chat.

 

My other Tulpas have their own account now.

I've always pronounced it toll-puh, toll as in toll booth and puh as in putt.

 

Edit: Good description from /u/Valkyrie_of_Loki: Tull-puh rhyming with dull duh

 

Do most people pronounce the second part as pah as in padding?

Tull-puh.

 

I didn't know people pronounced it differently than that O_o

 

Tul-pa(h) kinda makes sense to me.

 

"Tool" is different than "tul" in tulpa

"Tall" is different than "tul" in tulpa

"toll" is different than "tul" in tulpa

 

But maybe people in different areas pronounce "tul" differently? Very interesting

Hi I'm one of Lumi's tulpas! I like rain and dancing and dancing in the rain and if there's frogs there too that's bonus points.

All of my posts should be read at a hundred miles per hour because that's probably how they were written

"toll" is different than "tul" in tulpa

 

It's such a subtle difference but I guess you're right.

 

And the plural is obviously Tail-pay, good thing everyone pronounces that the same way.
