How I pronounce Minetest stuff

by Extex » Post

Mese I don't know how everyone else pronounces it but I pronounce it like a combination of Mess and say (phonetic: mɛseɪ) with only one S sound

Oerkki is such a weird word. When I first read it I read it and pronounced it as Ear-oh-key (phonetic ɪrː əʊrː kiː) and pronounced it like that ever since

Anyway how do you pronounce these Minetest related words, and if you can think of other ones please let know :)

^ That is relatively close to how it's originally said in Finnish. Me being Finnish, that's how I say it.

I pronounce mese as "meez."

I pronounce Oerkki as "oh-err-key" ("err" as in "error").

[ˈmɛˌsɛ] is correct
If you lack the reality, go on a trip or find a job.
