Pronunciation

How is "achso" pronounced? :-) --Ihope127 14:33, 24 Oct 2005 (GMT)

Think "ach" as in "Bach" + "So" like the English word, I believe. --GregorR 17:43, 25 Oct 2005 (GMT)
I think the problem may be that many people doesn't know how to pronounce Bach either...--Rune 21:12, 25 Oct 2005 (GMT)
Think "ock" as in "spinlock" then. --Graue 12:32, 26 Oct 2005 (GMT)
I have no idea what a spinlock is (and neither does dictionary.com), but if it is pronounced the same way as lock in english, then it is not an example of how to spell ach or bach --Rune 15:22, 26 Oct 2005 (GMT)
Here are two pages from my local university, Exeter, explaining German pronuncation:
The first one contains a .wav file at the top giving the pronunciation of 'ach' (among other words), and the second one contains a .wav file at the top giving the pronunciation of 'so' (among other words). --Safalra 15:32, 26 Oct 2005 (GMT)
Very nice Safalra. Actually hearing it is much better than trying to understand a written explanation. --Rune 16:27, 26 Oct 2005 (GMT)
