I know this may seem minor but: I was reading Legacy of the Force: Betrayal and I was reading the part where Syal describes the Aleph-class starfighter on pg 320:"With their ball-shaped cockpits, reminiscent of TIE cockpits but larger, and the circular transparisteel viewports before both the pilot's and gunner's seats, with the smooth ball cockpit lines graduating to two trailing thruster pods narrowing the farther they were from the cockpit, the Aleph looked like nothing so much as the head of a gigantic Twi'lek, trailing its head-tails behind and wearing clumsy earmuffs. It was no wonder the Aleph test pilots ans just about everyone else who saw them referred to the craft as Twees." This is saying that the pronunciation of the Twi in Twi-lek is with a long "e" "Twee'lek". But in the Clone Wars Storm Over Ryloth episode, Obi-Wan says "We're here to aid the TwI'lek's, not destroy their home." He pronounces Twi'lek with the a long "i" as in "I". What is the correct pronunciation?GrandAdmiralJake 03:47, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
I've always said "twee", but I think the Clone Wars is the first canonical pronunciation of the word (T-canon over C-canon). Or perhaps it's one of those dialect things: Tomayto/Tomahto. By the way, this topic should be in the Knowledge Bank Forum. - Esjs(Talk) 14:30, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Actually, IIRC, Twi'lek is pronounced two different ways in TCW. Filoni commented on that in one of his Behind the scenes clip, saying that they liked to keep the pronunciation open for fans who have their own way. --Eyrezer 23:17, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
IIRC as well, Leland Chee showed a glimpse of the Holocron at C4, which showed both pronunciations for Twi'lek. —Xwing328(Talk) 22:57, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
In KOTOR I and II, there are people who pronounce it both ways. The most common one as I can tell is with a long e. —Unsigned comment by18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs).
