Proper noun pronunciation
I am now a bit confusing about an English word’s pronunciation, so I would like to hear you advice about it. Please help me.
Our company is going to launch a new aesthetic device. I’ve finally completed the device’s naming as “RESOLUT”. As you know, the meaning of the device name is come from “Resolute” or “Resolution”. and the correct pronunciation of “RESOLUT” name is “ rézəlùːt ” in English. But if there are no pronunciation wrong I would like to call the name to “r ìːsəlùːt ” in Korea, because this is more looks better to call in Korea.
Also the new device will be export to overseas, so I am a bit sensitive to the correct pronunciation.
Anyway, the device “RESOLUT” is a new proper noun, and I want to call “r ìːsəlùːt ” . is this right or shame thing?
Please advice me above question
If you name your product Resolut and sell it in the US, people here will pronounce it the same way they say "resolute" regardless of how you pronounce it. Even in the US & other English-speaking countries, the s will be harder (with a z sound) or softer - depending on geographical differences in speech. Many people won't distiguish between the two even if they have a commercial stuck in their head. People in Alabama, California, and Massachusetts do have very different ways to pronounce many words and can sometimes have difficulty understanding each other... and that's just in the US. Canadians, Brits, and Jamaicans all speak English and have other differences in the way to pronounce the same words.
