It's pronounced ['saUrOn], in lines with Quenya pronunciation. In the snippets of the movie I've seen they're pending between [A:] and [aw]. I think Tolkien might have pronounced [A:], but he meant for it to be pronounced with a diphthong [aU]. ||| daniel _________________________________________________________________ Hämta MSN Explorer kostnadsfritt på
