Wojciech

I knew a Wojciech living in Utica, New York. He pronounced it Voy-tek, and he emigrated from Poland when he was 13.

Wojciech sounds pretty official. I'm sure his friends and family call him Wojtek (Voy-tek).
His wife might call him Wojtus, Wojteczek... (Voy-tush, Voy-techek) :)

So is the end of the sound like the "ay" in say?

Thanks...Sounds like it might "almost" be like the a in say, but short without the "y" dipthong...?
Like Chante (if there was an accent on the last e)?

Thanks again....really trying to get it right!

y = like "y" in adultery or "y" in advocacy

no, it's not, unless as in 'adultery' pronounced with a heavy Polish accent :), no kidding, must be a local thing or something, but i heard that the pronounciation of the last 'y' can change. the most simillar to Polish 'y' i heard in an English program was in 'Minister, Minister', where the speak with this posh sort of an accent.

that's why the best way to learn pronunciation of any word and in any language is through : listen (native speaker) and repeat

Thanks Goonie....a little more help....would tu-droy be close or is is like you wrote as one smooth word? The "r" was rolled a little when I heard it though. Is there more of a hit or accent at the "d" tu-Droy ? Hope that makes sence.

one smooth word, accent always falls on the first syllable, r's are always hard

go to ivo.pl and type in trzy in the little window and click on "odczytaj" and a voice will pronounce it for you.

make sure you pick the Polish speaking Ewa or Jacek

Start with putting your tongue towards your upper teeth somehow almost between the upper row of your teeth and the lower row like when you pronounce the english th. Contrary to speaking the th while pronouncing trzy the front part of the tongue is not free in your mouth but pressed on the palatine right behind your upper teeth. From this basic position your click the tongue backwards, its tip showing upwards and moving backwards.

I hope that helped a little bit ;)

yank i don't get that, my tongue is in knots lol

I,m learning the numbers to and i'v listened to it over and over. The only thing i think it sounds like is saying the word 'stair' very short and quick, but i don't know if that is right.
