The Winter's Tale


Recommended Posts

I can't find any help on how to pronounce these names! This is how we've been doing it, but I think we're wrong on all of them: :tongue_smilie:


Leontes: lay-AWN-teez


Polixenes: pol-ee-SANE-ees


Camillo: cuh-MEE-yo


Hermione: her-MY-nee


Paulina: paw-LIE-nuh


Perdita: PER-dee-tuh


Shakespeare people, please help. :bigear:

Leontes: lee-AWN-tays


Polixenes: pawl-IX-en-ees


Camillo: cam-ILL-oh


Hermione: her-MY-on-ee


Paulina: paw-LEE-nuh


Perdita: PER-dih-tuh or per-DEE-tuh. The first way is the British pronunciation, the second is American.


You can also watch it with the British pronunciation of names on YouTube. I linked to part one.
