How do you say "Eyjafjallajökull" anyway?

Posted April 20, 2010

We were chatting in the Weather Center this morning about how to pronounce the name of that volcano in Iceland, "Eyjafjallajökull."  Elizabeth found this article from the London Independent newspaper which seems to be a pretty good overview of how to spit out all those syllables.  Your mouth will resemble a volcano.

    I pronounce it the same way it seems everyone else does, "the Icelandic Volcano"!

    Still prefer the designs of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth:

    On the volcano ... they should just rename it "The Volcano"
