How To Pronounce 'huawei, Peugeot And Hyundai' Correctly. by flemsy15(m): 9:36pm On Apr 30, 2019
Peugeot: This is a French automotive manufacturer. The common French pronunciation of "Peugeot" is "POOzho" ( ( IPA 'puːʒʊ).

Huawei: This is a Chinese company and the name is pronounced by IPA as [wȁː.wɐ̏i]. The company had considered changing
the name in English as it was concerned that non-Chinese may find
the name hard to pronounce, but decided to keep the name, and
launched a name recognition campaign instead to encourage a
pronunciation closer to "Wah-Way" using the words "Wow Way".


Hyundai: The pronunciation depends where you are, says Jo Kim, a linguist and Korean specialist at the BBC Pronunciation Unit. The original Korean pronunciation is closest to HYUN-day (-hy as in Hugh, -u as in bun, -ay as in day). Hyundai's US operation uses the pronunciation HUN-day (-h as in hot, -u as in bun, -ay
as in day, US anglicisation).

A large number of people will just type/write the name on a surface and show to the seller before purchase. This piece is helpful.

Xiaomi nko?
According to ex-Xiaomi sensation Hugo Barra, the best way to pronounce Xiaomi is 'show me'. But in reality the first syllable is more "Shio" than "Show,". So the right way to pronounce Xiaomi is "Shio-me"

I think all these problems are from the people who coined d English version of writing these names especially for all those Asian companies that use different types of alphabets, they no choose the right letters to aid easy pronunciation. But English has never been 'pronounce as spelt' so u can't blame them totally, they r free to 'freestyle'

Are you sure you need school fees? You must be a learner. Use your main moniker where you have been contributing on nairaland to present your request. This one you are doing is try your luck
