[POLL] How to pronounce “mouboo?”

Post by Tirifto » 18 Apr 2017, 16:25

Hello all!

While translating some mobs' names, I realized that I'm not sure how “mouboo” should be pronounced. Therefore I want to ask you: how do you pronounce “mouboo?” Please send in your pronunciation, and feel free to attach audio recordings if you wish! :)

EDIT: Removed edit by gumi because I don't want non-free software recommendations in my post.

"none bad".
mu bu

moh-bou = viscous lad, knucklehead.

It is a Tritan word so it would be labial as in muh-buh which means something like "tatanka" but less important to them.

I have no particular reasoning to support it, but it's always been different from any of those option, perhaps similar to bcs86's second option: 2 syllables, the first like the (US) slang abbreviated "more" as mo' (or like the name of one of the three stooges) with the second syllable like what you would say when you jumped out to surprise someone "boo" with a long o.

It gets pronounced the English way for those who play the game in English which is moo (moo, as in cow) and boo (boo, as in surprise).
The question is unclear, but you should translate it according to what your language community would most likely want to use.

It can have a different name to a different locality as happens in games developed in Japan for export to other regions.

Your locality might not even have "m" sounds and use something like "Qua-Quu". Or name it something related to the word play that your community would know.

BUT, HOWEVER, for just sound-to-sound equivalency use Moo-Boo to avoid being bombed by the US.

I pronounce it otherwise.
Someone once said to me between the lines " You are unwanted here anymore, you are rude, arogant, ignorant, stupid, annoying and worthless person."
And all i can say about it Yes i might be... but that doesnt matter i dont have other feelings different from almighty hate and anger... but in the end its pointless to explain myself.

I thought it was more Mao-boo personally, but cutting through the red tape... 8)

We could always do what certain stupid translators of holy writings do, and say "Oh, because we can't agree on how it was originally pronounced, we won't pronounce it at all", and then we could remove it and call it "LORD". :mrgreen:

Anyone up for chopping some LORD's?
