And now I'm here. Whoop-dee-doo! Looking forward to working on this with y'all. By the way, how do you actually pronounce Silofais?

Heylo, Mr. Woods  Cool

According to the originator of the language, Silōfais is pronounced like this:

['si.lɔ̝.faɪ̯s] or [SEE-lo-f-eye-s]

The >> ō << is proper within the language, but can be Anglicized without the diacritic. That is, while speaking English, the proper transcription is "Silofais", and while speaking Silōs it is "Silōfais".

His real name is Jack (well, his nickname). He should be here soon to answer your other thread.

That's right. The macron is obligatory in the language itself, not in English. "SEE loaf ice", so to speak.

Oh, thank you. It was bothering me for a while. Long as I'm a citizen, I'd better know how to pronounce my country's name. It's like living in Illinois and pronouncing it "ill-o-NOISE." Just not how you do things.
