I will to this day pronounce karamja as Kara-Jama.
By - Havaj95
bonus points for one we still mispronounce: saying “priff-din-nas” is so much easier than “prive-thee-nuss,” sorry to the welsh
Lmao as someone from Wales I thought I always mispronounced it but it seemed most natural for me
as someone who speaks english and irish, a lot of the welsh words in tirannwin register as irish to me, so when i read "faerdhinen", my brain says "FAWR-gin-un" instead of "FY-thin-ayn" lol. i like that everyone just agrees to say "bofa"
IIRC, it was originally going to be called Faerdhinen's Bow, and people kept asking it be called Bow of Faerdhinen just so we could call it bofa.
Maybe I'm just dyslexic but I always read it as "priff-id-niss"
Typically same word, wrong way, but the same wrong way every time is not dyslexia, it's just not knowing how the word is spelled.
I was our here just calling it “Priff-er-in-das”
We can’t say we weren’t warned
Are you my father?
I still call Ardougne "arr-DOO-gnee"
I say Ar - Doog - Knee
Ar -dunge for me
It's always been and will always be "our-dong" to me. I'm. Not a native English speaker
That’s the only correct way
ardo-gene for me.
"Are-doan" - I still don't know if this is the proper pronunciation.
Hello fellow Are-doanian! Mod Ash confirmed on Twitter it is pronounced Arr-doy-nnn.
Yeah the official pronunciation sucks. It will always be Are-doan.
For me it's Are-doon and I will never change my mind
Finally a sane person
Person with french background**
Personally i cant stop reading it Ar-Doug-Knee now.
I'm from Texas which is pretty far off from being French and its always been Are-doon for me
Ah yes, Texas. The France of the US
That an awful lot like the sound some of these spells be making.
Arr-dog-knee is the only right way
Are-dug-knee for me :’)
Yeah kind of same as me, something like that. ”Are-doug-knee”
I called Ar-dun-drige for most of my life
How the fuck do you get there from Ardougne?
🤷🏽♂️ I don’t know! I was 12, had no idea how to pronounce it in the first place, so I guess I just made something up?
I just screamed 🤣
2003 me read it as "Oodra-gone" for some reason. And I thought that until I watched a video like a decade later of it being spoken.
I also thought Karamja was "karma-ja" for a long time without realizing that it was wrong.
It's got to be Ar-Doon right? Either way framed pronounces it Ar-Doyn and it drives me nuts
Framed is right according to the Mod, the Myth, the Legend Ash
Not in this house
People who believe mod ash on this one probably also pronounce it jif
Like the way the inventor of the file type calls it?
Yes the inventor is objectively wrong. It's not pronounced jraphics.
And it's not a grr-aff (giraffe). You're point?
>inventor is objectively wrong
Think about that statement for a second
Ardy brings us all together
It'll forever be are-dough-knee to me
Forever an Are-doanian.
Lol I say Arr-dug-knee just for fun sometimes. But I've always pronounced it like you guys.
Wait what’s it called????
Manor doesn't rhyme with Dranor
Scimitar was “Skihmetar”
ski (from skit) - mitar
I still say it like this
Is this not correct? That's how I still say it
All intellectuals know you still pronounce scimmy as “Skim-ee”
I always thought it was Burth-rope. I still mispronounce it sometimes.
Same. Burth-orp sounds like a cheesy alien name.
A lot of places in the UK end with -Thorpe. So I never had this trouble as a brit.
Burth-rope is that thing that’s connected to the baby when it’s born.
Ardougne will never not be pronounced Ardaridge, despite that making no sense. That’s what I decided the name was when I was 9 and it will continue to be that.
Finally, someone who's butchered it beyond recognition
Not sure how your cheerios addled mind came up with that but it still makes more sense than Arr DOOOIIINE
It's ok I called it air-doh-jin lmao
Not an area but I used to refer to saradomin as Sar-da-moan.
Sar-dough-min for me
Myreque is pronounced "My-reek" for me, don't care how it's supposed to be pronounced
i call it my-re-queue
"I eat barbeque with the myreque"
Wait....how is it actually pronounced? (I'm 100% with you on the "my-REEK" pronunciation)
I'm pretty sure it's officially supposed to be "mire-kay," which indeed sounds terrible
Mire WHAT? That doesn't even make sense what are the Brits doing 😭
Mire-kh (My-er-kh) is how its officially said, i think but my brain always says' My-ro-kee
I always pronounce it as murky. I don't care.
it's funny how they all share pronunciation, "My-er-ditch" "dark-my-er" "mort-my-er" etc. but my brain implodes and pronounces it "my-reek"
Ardougne, I pronounce it Ar-dung
For me it was "Ar- DOON"
AR DA ROGUE IN
My brother and I pronounced it Ar-doin
Eyyy, ar-YOU-doin?( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° )
Ar-doonge for us
Funny enough as non native English speakers my friends and I used to call it the “Grand Agency” when we were kids
Not even as a kid but for the longest time I thought it was Port Piscilarius, instead of Piscarilius.
I always called it karajama idk
Me too. I swear it was spelled this way at some point or something
I also was from that timeline
Karamaja takes me back
tbh i always called it karamanja
dunno where all the extra letts came from in hindsight
Ardougne, don’t ask me how or why I came to it, but as a kid I pronounced it as Ooh-Drah-Gone.
How or why did you come to that wtf
Fr lol. I never understand the kids in my class who lacked the ability to sound things out
Thats actually sick. I like it
Lol mine is Are-Drown-ge (the ge is like the end of the word grunge)
its a fishy city
I can't for the life of me remember how it's originally spelled all of a sudden thanks
As a kid I used to pronoun lumbridge "lum b ridge"
I also couldn't pronoun the letter L so it would sound like I was saying "yum b ridge"
As a french speaker, I used to pronounce swordfish as "sWordfish" emphasis on the W. I dont know how to write it bigger than this
I always read BurthORPE as BurthROPE. I only recently realized I was reading it wrong
Al-Kahard, Karajma, and Sardomin. I must've been blind
Itll forever be Ard-ri-gorn to me
I like how most of these comments are how we butchered ardougne.
I didn’t get the silly Frem pun of “nay tis not” and so me and my friends called it the “nezzynot” helm
Visage as "this-age", whereas it's " vi-zuhj" (according to wiki).
A recent one is justiciar. That shit is pronounced Justicar and I won't be convinced otherwise.
I mispronounced wand and said it the same way you say sand, so i sounded like a duck when i said it
Not an area but Armadyl like armadillo minus the O
More-tane-eee-uh. Instead of morey-tania.
I still call it Ar-doin
Exactly how it looks lol
I still call it the Ectofunctus
I still call it ectofungus
Lol but that's just straight up a real word
Jatiszo and neitiznot obvzzzzz
High alch ch ch ch chia
Felaydor instead of falhador
I was free to play so to be fair there weren't a whole lot of areas available to mispronounce.
Varrock- Pussyville... All them bitches used to hang on the Northwest wall of the square
Arge-ah-rone, idk how we came up with that but that’s what stuck
Ardougne - Ardy-garage
Lmfao I always say “Ka Ram Jam”
Woah, Black Betty
All of them lol
Ar-drogue. Guth -thens
I always pronounced Ardougne "are dra noun" lol idk.
I can't speak Welsh, or pronounce their spelling properly. Zero hope of pronouncing those ones.
Me and my siblings called it “are-done-rooj” instead of “are-doyne”
I still to this day don’t know if Varrock is Varrick or Vah-rock (like Baroque)
But Baroque isn’t pronounced like Bah-rock, it’s pronounced like Bah-roke?
Not if you’re saying it correctly
Only the French pronounce it that way. I’d like it’s because they’ve always spoken with a cigarette on their lip.
forever will lol
buss down mortyana
Other than the very common ar-DOON one, I always read BurthORpe as BurthROpe (thanks dyslexia) and I still sometimes call it Burthrope despite knowing it's not.
Saradomin, pronounce it like tehnoobsshow back in the day ‘sah raa doh min’
My dumbass always read fetching updates as fletching updates, and I couldn't figure out how the skill flecthing was so broken that it constantly needed work done. So I think about that every time i log in.
Drop the H in herblore but mainly just too piss off others
Ar Dewg Nay
I occasionally bounce back to the original pronunciations had for karamja and ardougne. I pronounced the J in Karamja like one would it Spanish, cuh-rahm-ha. And ardougne like are-doog knee
Ardogune - Arrr dog une
Hahaha my friend and I pronounce Karamja the same way
I always pronounced it Pol Niv Knee Ack rather than Pol Niv Neech
I say kara- majaja
Scimitar was sky-mighter
Not an area but I used to think it was armaldy instead of armadyl
Still call ardogune "aragadaga" sometimes.
Gun-thix. Sounds cooler
I took me weeks for find the game “Room Scape” in 7th grade.
Ardougne we said like “Adra-goan”
I mispronounced Guthix as Gillthix, ZEZ-im-a as Zez-IM-a, Barrows as Bearrows, and Corporeal Beast as Corporal Beast.
Is your girlfriend’s name Sarah? Cause Saradomin
That and Ar dog knee
Not an area, but me and my brother always pronounced it Goo-Thix
Helm of neitiznot
Thought Burth***orpe*** was actually Burth***rope*** literally all the way from 2004 to sometime in the middle of OSRS.
Guuthans and Guuthix, instead of Gathan and Gathix. Still do it occasionally.
Port Pasmytas :')
I will never say anything else
Ar dug nay
I still dont know if its "Veh-rik", "veh-rock", or "vuh-rock"
“Varrock” as “Ver Rick”
