Why is Euler Oiler if Euclid is not Oiclid?
>>
bratwurst isn't feta
>>
One's a greek name and one's a swiss name.
>>
Euler is eww-lar. Swiss german pronounce it eu different than germans, and jewlar was Swiss.

>amerifat trying to argue with germans over the correct pronounciation of a german accent
>>
>>9672782
So I should trust a random anon who says he is swiss over all the consistent answers I get by searching it? My interest in pronouciation and language is equivalent to some random amerifart ignornace and indiference?

No, you should trust your own idiot intuition.

amerifat, even tho the eu sound is pronounced differently, its not pronounced like "eww" but like a long german "ö".
also
>what are exceptions to the rule
its a fucking dialect, not a different language with pronounciation rules
>>
>>9672802
I was merely describing what I heard on some video explaoning the pronounciation, which is much more close to the familiae "e-w" pronouciation without getting too technical. Also, I'm not a fucking amerifat, I'm Mexican and I can tell you that en español, palabras que se escriben igual se pueden pronunciar differente en distintas regiones/paises hispano-hablantes, y aun que el cambio es sutil y principalmente enfocado en la entonación, si es notable (in spanish, words written the same can be pronounced different in different regions/countries that use the spanish language, and even if the change is subtle and mainly focussed on tone level, it is still notable). So while I also cannot assume that how Euler and everyone around him pronounced his surname (and that it seems swiss dialect wasn't ussed for official buisness) it is still not as easy and universal, because language is not a fixes concept with rules that cannot be broken as you say. Also, look up the etymology, it comes from a word that doesn't has the "oi" prefix, and I can't find anything as to when the change could possibly happen considering how much the languange changed since high german.
>>
In German and Austrian pronunciation, both are Oi.
>>
>eu > [y:]
>Leute is pronounced "Lüüt" - [ly:t], teuer is pronounced "tüür" - [ty:r], deutsch becomes "düütsch".

this is actually most convincing.

Üüler.
>>
>>9672437
because euler was swiss and his name is german. here eu is pronoinced like oy

so we dont say e-u-ropa, we say oyropa

the loyf of the woyf is ended by the knoyf
>>
Greekfag here, "Eu" in Euclid was supposed to be read as "Eff". Also his Greek name has an ending -es (same as Socrates'). So it should've been Euclides, pronounced "Effclidees".
>>
English is a slutty language that allows just about any other language to indiscriminately inject their essence into the English vocabulary. As a result, English is full of mongrelized rules and exceptions.
>>
>>9673303
but isn't it like that nobody knows today how the ancients spoke and pronounced their classical greek?
>>
posting sexual pictures on /sci/ should be a bannable offense
>>
>>9673324
yes, and there shouldn't be any excuses or exceptions, not even if someone actually posted Yourclid
>>
>>9672437
Euler is a German name while Euclid is a Greek one, and the eu is pronounced differently in these languages. Normally they get imported into English with the same anglicized pronunciation ("yoo") but the German name gets corrected for some reason to be more "accurate," while the Greek one doesn't. If we use the same logic for the eu in Euclid then it's actually a diphthong of those two simple vowels, /eu/.
>>
>>9673323
That anon is using modern Greek pronunciation actually, but that's valid too so it doesn't matter. Just don't say Oiklid.
>>
>>9672447
True, but this is not how Greeks pronounce "eu". It's just that in English, Greek "eu" is traditionally pronounced as "you".
In ancient Greek it was pronounced as it is written. "eh-oo"
In modern it is pronounced as "ef" or "ev" depending on whether the vowel (or consonant) that follows it is voiced or unvoiced.

Those characters you used as examples are not phonetic though. No language is phonetic. Use the IPA if you want to describe something, otherwise it's literally meaningless.
>>
>>9678277

WRONG. Most europeans languajes are 99% phonetic. Latin and slavs specially

More like Gyro Jew or Zeus Jew.
