I imagine Gith pronounce it Ssith.  Many a Gith, reach for the dark side, they do.

You know I think if James simply retitled his thread "Cheese" and apologized for his first post being off-topic, all problems would be solved.

My head cannon pronounces it: Fuck you, jump on this sword.

But I read it as "gith" not "jith"

'Alecost' is actually a RL word.

I'd imagine 'gith' is pronounced like 'git'.

I'd imagine 'gith' is pronounced like 'git'.

Pushing at him with the head of your broom, you say to the doubled over,  brown-skinned gith,  "Go-on you, git!"

Let it be forever settled: it is a hard 'g'.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Githyanki

This part is great:

"Religion
The worship of gods is forbidden in githyanki society. Their lack of piety is further demonstrated by the fact that they often make their homes on the floating, stonelike corpses of dead gods drifting in the Astral Plane."
Live your life as though your every act were to become a universal law.

Reminder that that is the Githyanki, not the Githzeria. Githzerai are the 'not ass holes' gith.

Those 'gith' are also descended from human-like people, not elves.

They're based on githyanaki from Dark Sun, so it's pronounced like that.

How about Tuluk?

Is it Too-look?

Is it Tull-luck?

Or some combination!?

It could also be the githzerai!

It would most likely be the Githyanki, because the Githzerai are essentially 'good guys' from the way I read their wiki artical.

Pshaw. Githzerai being 'good guys' is like 'orange and blue' spectrum of ideology. They're 'good' but still not your friends, and impossible to understand.

Tuluk is pronounced [International Phonetic Alphabet style]  tʉːlɵk. Stress on both syllables, more on the first.  Try it, it sounds great. Much like our favourite song !

Also, I learned two new vowels I didn't know the rest of the world doesn't use today. Yay!

IPA is the best and I don't understand why we don't use it for everything. Would be SO much easier to learn to speak other languages.
