Jofa-->pronounced "yaw-fah" or "yoo-fah"?

Post by Stig Arne By » Sun, 16 Aug 1998 04:00:00

Hmmm....

I would suggest "yoo-fah" is the most correct way to pronounce it in
English.
At least that how it's pronounced straight forward in my country.
And as you perhaps know, Jofa is a Swedish company (my neighbour
country) and several words are actually pronounced equally between all
Scandinavian countries.

If you should pronounce it as "yaw-fah", how would you then actually
write it?

I don't really know. But then again Americans, like most people, have a
way of pronouncing things the way they want to pronounce them, not the way
it's written. (actually I think most people here call it "Jaw-fah", with a
hard(ish) 'J')
