    From what I have gathered in my french classes, french usually don't pronounce the last consonant of the word.
    and all the irregular verbs should jump off a bridge

    I say or-teel

    I dont understand why people say or-tail. maybe its a thing like colo(u)r
    What's a sig btw

    The ei sound in English is whatever it wants to be. Sometimes it's A (freight, neighbor), sometimes it's E (weird), sometimes it's I (feisty). Who knows. I pronounce it or-tell, but I can see it being pronounced or-tail, or-teel, or or-tay.

    Wow Orteil.
    I must admit that it's a mistake that I can do, even as a french.

    Yeah, I know, I'm not an example...

    What is life? Is it nothing more than the endless search for a cutie mark? And what is a cutie mark but a constant reminder that we're all only one bugbear attack away from oblivion? And what of the poor gator? Flank forever blank, destined to an existential swim down the river of life to... an unknowable destiny?

    What the hell even is cookie gas?
    (Oh, and BTW, I've never ever seen such long quote chain)
    EDIT: I figured out that all of matter can be in gaseous state. So cookie gas would exist... but it would just be a horribly hot mess.

    I am from Estonia, and here we (almost) always pronounce things like we write them, so the way I have always pronounced Orteil is or-tail, with the pressure on the first syllable. An advanced version:
    O like in fox, r like in rain, t like in time, a, but in the way you spell it in the alphabet (so ei) and l like in light.

    My dream :<</p>
    In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of the "k". This should klear up konfusion and keyboards kan have 1 less letter.

    There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like "fotograf" 20% shorter.

    In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be ekspekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of the silent "e"s in the language is disgraseful, and they should go away.

    By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v". During ze fifz year, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

    After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi to understand ech ozer. Ze drem vil finali kum tru! And zen world!

    1. Don't bump
    2. That's because it's a literal greek pronunciation and not typical words (like word is 'word' or syllable is 'sill-ah-bull'.)
