I just wanted to get some opinions on whether or not pronunciation guides should be placed in the intro of quality articles (FA, GA, CA) when possible. To me it just makes sense and is very encyclopedic. Any thoughts? MasterFred(Whatever) 13:42, November 11, 2010 (UTC)
If such information is available, then yes, it should be added, in my opinion. Entries in The New Essential Guide to Characters, for example, provide pronunciation. A few other sources do, as well. — Fiolli 14:26, November 11, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, it's definitely helpful for a lot of crazy SW names. If there's an audio file available that pronounces the name, it can go in the intro, too --- see M'iiyoom Onith or Empatojayos Brand for two examples of FA's with that.
Some authors have pronounced the names of characters in podcast interviews and videos, too. For example, This video. sees Troy Denning pronounce "Alema", "Sebatyne", and Jae Juun, all of which are different than the pronunciations I always envisioned. Walter Jon Williams clarifies the pronunciation of Traest Kre'fey in his Chronoradio interview. Those might be at home in a Behind the Scenes section, properly sourced.
