'A' can be pronounced in several ways by 'A'barth do you mean 'ay'barth (american) or 'aa'barth (english).

using syllables can help to show how you speak. for example i pronounce it arb arth,

Re: How to pronouce...?

since america came into existance there has never been a correct way to say anything in english. you could argue that Carlo Abarth said it in the correct way, but i dont know how he said it. you could argue that the italian way is correct because Carlo was italian. but i'm english so i'll say it in an english accent, plus im from northern england so i go for a northern pronunciation. i say it the correct way for a northen english person to speak, but that would sound wrong for everyone else. you say it how you say it for a reason, so how can it be wrong in any way. its like me trying to teach an american how to say aluminium correctly, my way is only correct in english, not american, but both are correct in the big scheme of things. all that matters is what language and dialect you are trying to use. i guess the australian way to say it will be similar to the american way, aybarth.

Well put, but I'm Chinese, so I'll say it with a Chinese accent

Re: How to pronouce...?

As I tend to speak like the queen cos I'm from the South-East.
(or sarf Lundon mate...depending on my mood )

I pronounce it like I would imagine toffee nosed pinin__prestatyn to.

With 2 'r' sounds, or a soft 'h'.... Ar barth or Ah barth

Re: How to pronouce...?

I'm still struggling trying to pronounce it in Italian, whether to put an 'o', 'a' or an 'i' at the end
