    2F/2F,

    I meant that Q.G. is right in saying that W and V are pronounced differently in German, but with those exceptions I hinted at.

    I don't share the view that in German a W is changed into V qua pronunciation, but Q.G. only hinted at "English comic versions" of German.


    I have not been to Wiesbaden so far; maybe I learn a bit more on the W and V there.

    For the rest, 2F/2F why not come over from your gig at Edinburgh to that german Wurstbude for a sausage as Q.G. proposed?


    Rol Lei Nut,

    I'm a Canon user too. As well as 2F/2F.

    The only answer to the question "How do YOU pronounce 'Wein'?" is: Any way you want!

    "Wein" in German meaning "wine" is pronounced like English "vine" - no regional variations I am aware of. On the other hand, as far as I know, the well-known jazz promoter George Wein is/was always anounced as "George Wheen."
