Minchiate pronunciation

Post by Canid » 02 Sep 2018, 18:52

If this is the wrong place, please redirect & forgive me. I’ve heard many pronunciations of ‘Minchiate’. Massimiliano Filadoro (Viceversa tarot creator) just corrected me...the Italian word is phonetically, in English, ‘MEEN K JA TE’. I’ll trust his pronunciation, since he’s Italian & struggles with English.
The eye thru which I see God is the same eye thru which God sees me.

I guess I've been pronouncing it wrong too, then. I'd say: Min-chee-ah-tay

In Italian, ch is pronounced like k, not like in English languages. If you want a ch sound in Italian, write a simple c ;-)

It's Minkiateh.
