  1. Ah ok, at this point your english skills exceed mine. I thought of "pogus" as a suffix for its own. The "u" between

    "Ker-fluffle u pogus"(I actually dissected it this way) was just a link for me, to connect Kerfluffle with pogus, because Kerflufflepogus wouldn't sound as good.

     

    You see in my mother tongue (which is not english) that wouldn't have any effect on how to pronounce pogus.

    But always nice to learn new stuff, especially on an example as this. :)

     

     

    Just to be clear: Would Kerflufflepogus be pronouced the same way as Kerfluffleupogus? (in regard to the "pogus" at the end)


  2. "Kerfluffleupogus" [kəɹˌflʌfəˈlʌpəgəs]

     

    You pronounce the last "u" the same way as the last "o" - why?

     

    I would say either [kəɹˌflʌfəˈlju:pəʊgəs] or [kəɹˌflʌfəˈlʌpəʊgəs]

     

    OMG you know what I'm talking about!!1!

     

    I pronounce the "-pogus" like [pəgəs] because of analogy with similarly constructed words, such as "hippopotamus" (where "-tamus" is pronounced [təməs]).

     

    You see, I pronounce "-pogus" like [pəʊgəs] because of a similar word, namely "bogus" which is pronouced [bəʊgəs]

     

    We need to find out who invented the name, he has the right to choose the pronunciation - artistic licence you know :)

     

    @DocDoom

    I'm not that familiar with phonetic spelling either. Didn't learn it @school

    Just looked it up on the internet like Veeno xD


  3. You see? There the fun begins!

     

    Well "Kerfluffle" should be easy: It's just like Fluffle, just with a "Ker" left to it -> Kerfluffle

     

    Then we have "pogus": which I pronounce like "bogus", just with "p" -> pogus

     

    So we have: Kerfluffle - u - pogus

     

    And now you guys got me...

    How to pronounce that nasty "u" in the middle?

     

    I pronounce it [ʌ], i.e. I pronounce "Kerfluffleupogus" [kəɹˌflʌfəˈlʌpəgəs].

     

    You probably have no idea what I'm talking about.

     

    I'm OK with that.

     

    "Kerfluffleupogus" [kəɹˌflʌfəˈlʌpəgəs]

     

    You pronounce the last "u" the same way as the last "o" - why?

     

    I would say either [kəɹˌflʌfəˈlju:pəʊgəs] or [kəɹˌflʌfəˈlʌpəʊgəs]

     

    or for American English: either [kəɹˌflʌfəˈlju:poʊgəs] or [kəɹˌflʌfəˈlʌpoʊgəs]


  4. You see? There the fun begins!

     

    Well "Kerfluffle" should be easy: It's just like Fluffle, just with a "Ker" left to it -> Kerfluffle

     

    Then we have "pogus": which I pronounce like "bogus", just with "p" -> pogus

     

    So we have: Kerfluffle - u - pogus

     

    And now you guys got me...

    How to pronounce that nasty "u" in the middle?

     

    Of course I do know how to pronounce that... yeah I really do.... >_>

    This is just a test... of your devotion to Lord Kerfluffle.... uhm... to the Devourer of the Faithful!

     

    True believers will know how to pronounce the name!

     

    Edit:

    Alright I did some research... for you... not for me because I know how to say the name correctly!

    In German it would be something like "körflaffljupogus"

    with pogus like bogus I think... I mean I know...

  5. By 2014 all of you will have turned into marshmallow-weres, joining me in my devotion to spread the word of His Most Fluffyness, Lord Kerfluffleupogus, Devourer of the Faithful.

    Together we will teach the world what it means to be fluffy,sugary and of cubic shap - oh and pink!

     

    Oh... wait... Did I say that aloud? :o

    See, you foil your own dark designs :)

     

    They are not dark! They are pink!

     

    Pink is the new dark! (except that it's bright actually)

    It's okay, Fluffle... I'm reaching a twitching state that the big lizard might just want a cuddle with the marshmallow-were, as dangerous as that may be. XD

     

    Dragon-were-marshmallow.... that would be... really weird... o_0

     

     

    Don't put it as if a dragon-marshmallow-cuddle-session was only dangerous for the dragon. One breath of hot air from you and I would be roasted beyond fluffyness.

     

    I have however read somewhere that your marshmallow-wereness, as it were, does not spread to a "victim" if they are consuming you in a cup of hot dark chocolate... :biggrin:

     

    That might be true, but if you put me in a cup of hot dark chocolate, I'll soak up the chocolate, bloat, and become a gigantic hot, dark Gensou-devouring chocolate cube :o

     

    You know in that state, I'm like Minsc in Berserker Mode, I cannot tell foe for friend :o

    But am I really here, or just an illusion? :p

     

    Besides, like all who are curious about this, we would only use a small piece of you to test with.

     

    What's that over there? *Snip*

     

    You have just fallen in disgrace with the His Most Fluffyness, Lord Kerfluffleupogus, Devourer of the Faithful!
