How Do You Pronounce Eyjafjallajökull?

Iceland Lingual

Eyjafjallajökull is the Iceland volcano that news readers around the globe are running for the hills rather than pronounce. (Even my spell checker suggested Eyefull.)

So, how do out panel of critics pronounce it?

Concerned Citizen
Jim Meedsden, Circus Elephant Commentator


Shocked Man
Burt Sprinkler, Radio Talk Show Caller

"Hmmm, what about AY-avha-fiat-merkell cheptschwiptcw. Sorry for the little bit of spit."

John Tharsden, Bodybuilder Pec Bouncer

"No, I can't say it. I am, however, happy to perform the word using the dance method of the Riverdance, any takers?"

Old Gipper
Benjamin Rusky, 70s Continuity Announcer

"I've a'Flatley yogurt. (I would rather use the Riverdance method of expression too but my legs have been giving me jip for the last 20 years)."

Ape Man
Murray Baldicoot, Football/Soccer commentator

" AY-yah-fyah-lah-YOH-kuul. And the Welsh town is Llanfairpwllgwyn gyllgogerychwyrnd robwllllant ysiliogogogoch. The Mauri hill is pronounced Taumata whakatangihanga koauau o tamatea turi pukakapiki maunga horo nuku pokai whenua kitanatahu. Who wants to touch me?"
