kyakand that's the first time i heard "wprak" pronounced. It's like "double-u-pi-rak", when in my head i used to say "vi-pi-rak" :)06:33
larscI'll stay with the later, much more fluent07:14
viricI pronounce it "brac" or "beprac" (1M?@'0:)07:16
kyakviric: why is "b" the first sound? did you mean "v" (2M?@0:)?07:51
viricmost catalans, like spaniards, don't distinguish b and v :)07:53
viricand on start of word, that's always 'b'07:53
kyakah! :)07:53
viricmy friends say "it's incredible that you make sound Barcelona and València the same way" :)07:54
viriclike korean, we make one sound at start of word, another between vowels. And none is like 207:54
virickoreans don't have d/t distinction. Between vocals they use to do 'd', else 't'.07:55
viricbut it is one single letter for them.07:55
viric(koreans please confirm :)07:55
kyakso you do say "Balencia"? :)07:56
viricalthough specifically the catalans of València do distinguish b/v :)07:57
kyakwhat a useless letter then, v :)07:57
viricas years pass by, we need less letters ;)07:57
viricwe have troubles to know what to write, b or v07:58
kyaklet's merge w and v. Then merge v and b :)07:59
viricwe don't have w07:59
virichere, careless english pronouncers say "gu" instead of "w". :)08:00

viriche is, by far, the german which understands that text best.08:18
viricmost tell me "I don't know gothic"08:18
