Pronunciation of Chladek

Happened to notice the "how to pronounce" question is still linked to the forum. As older messages roll off the forum this link will ultimately go bad if it hasn't already. Probably a summary paragraph should be placed here. --Wes (talk) 22:31, 31 May 2012 (EST)

Possible ways to pronounce Chladek:

  1. Wes mentally pronounces it 'Schladek', which I assume is like Shladek (/'ʃlɑ:dək/ or maybe /'ʃleɪdək/)[1]
  2. Dmitri suggested 'KLAH-deck', based on how Stan and Dana Chladek pronounce it[2]
  3. Ralph suggested that it's pronounced like the German 'ch'. In fact, that appears to be the common way to pronounce 'ch' in Czech (/x/)[3]
  4. Nathan suggested 'tʃlædɛk (Ch as in Church)[4]
  5. Based on how Michelle Rawson wrote it down when taking a reservation, Karin Chladek pronounced it like 'Sladik'.DW67
