Hi Christian (and everyone else),

Hungarian pronunciation of <fo:ldimogyoro'>:
<o:>=o-trema (like in German)

You thought that the final <o> had a double acute, right? It doesn't; it's just
got a single acute, which makes it /o:/ and not /2:/. (And I thought <o:> was
/2/, not /9/. What _do_ /9/ and /2/ mean, then? - Sorry, I'm not too good at
IPA; it's confusing sometimes! :()

BTW, I totally agree that <jäätelötötteröt> sounds very funny... But what do
you mean by "ice cream cups"?

Now we should have: "[In your opinion,] what's the funniest sounding word in any language?"!
