How Do You Pronounce the Name of This Volcano?



It's bad enough the Icelandic volcano is wreaking havoc with air traffic and may well have other ill effects, but how does one pronounce its name?

How do you pronounce it? With great difficulty, that's how. :-)

The vulcanologists have stated that the last time it blew, expulsions of material continued on an intermittent basis for a year.

Nature bats last.

Alan,
Don't you just these foreign place names?
Mount St Helens was so much easier.
Try this

ay af yak lie ookootsch

ay as in bay, af as in cafe, yak the animal, lie as in bed and with that last bit there, both double o's are pronounced as in book, and the tsch is almost slurred fading out.
