    How do you pronounce Scheimpflug?

    I know I'm wrong but I've always said something like shem-floog. Reciently I heard a european say something like Shemu with more silent letters than phenetic. Does any one have a reasonable idea of pronounciation?

    In splitting it up I'd suggest you put together these words and letter:
    chime p fluke
    with a somewhat silent p in the middle.
    But I recon that some german reader have an even better suggestion. :-)

    How do you pronounce Scheimpflug?

    In German, the pronunciation of ei-ie combinations is determined by the last letter, so "ei" is pronounced like a "long" i - like eye. The "pf" combination is a little tougher. Essentially, you form the p with your lips, but don't actually pronounce it before transitioning to the f sound. A trailing g is pronounced so short that it sounds more like a k. In most circles, not too much criticism would befall either "shime floog" or "shime flook" though.

    Otzi,

    It's one of those words that can't be pronounced.

    Sames goes for Diagurrotype. Or Daguroughtype. Or Degirowtipe.

    You get the idea.
