oy-row. And the ,,o" is not a diphtong. Just a long "o", not rolling sideways.

In times of dringency, nothing is sacred, no?

Or have eye fo-pahd again.

(Ed. - At least CH didn't try pronounce his name to rime with salt, as in the thing Brussels puts in people's wounds.)

Actually it sounds like "héro"

but I don't believe none of what I hear. And only half of what I see.

Afew, Jérôme:

What matters is he. I know many children of poor people who are very right-wing.

I know you row, that's why the ship of ET is always on course. I was asking how you pronounce the you row expert I row's name.

Written language! The script unites, the speech divides.
The Spanish Minister of Economy (De Guindos) is called now De Güindos (as De Windos).
And that is serious: in Spanish there is a phrase "fall from the cherry," which would not apply to our minister, if it is not pronounced well.

Guindo = cherry (tree)
"caerse del guindo"("fall from the cherry")= realize what is happening.
