Re: Dune pronunciation question

I twitch like crazy every time I hear "Muad D'ib" pronounced "mwaDIB." Dammit, those are two words. It's Muad D'ib. That's Mooahd. Dib. There are TWO Ds, one at the end of the first word, one at the beginning of the second. It's the same sound you get in "bad dog." You don't say "badog."

Oh, and it's not "Chain-ee". It's CHAHN-ee."
Abba Anthony [St. Anthony the Great] said, "A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, 'You are mad; you are not like us.' " -- Wisdom of the Desert Fathers
