How do you pronounce Vučinić?

Hello.

I am always wondering how to correctly pronounce player names, and I am interested in this player, who plays for your NT and AS Roma.

Could you tell me how his name is supposed to be pronounced?

Currently I pronounce it "Vucsinics" (Hungarian -cs-), for German people it's like "Vutschinitsch", or English "Vuchinich".

I hope I am not butchering his name. :embarass:

"Vuch-in-ich" is fine (or the English way as you wrote it).

I'm wondering about the accentations as well. There are 2 different Accentations, but one pronounces them both the same?

The first accent is stronger but the difference is rather hard to hear.

So, technically correct would be: Voo-chee-neetj

Hmm.

In Hungarian we have a letter "ty", and I am trying to think of an english word that has the pronunciation but I'm coming up empty.

For example, our Hen is called "Tyúk.".

Could your "tj" be the same sound as my "ty"?

EDIT: I have found an english word, "Stew". When you pronounce it -Styew-, not -Stoo-.

Č is the 'tch' sound in Thatcher
Ć is the softer 'ch' sound in Choo Choo train.


And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn
