  1. Well I am going to stick to my pronunciations-regardless of their corectness. :twisted: :P

    Here's what I think, should anyone care...:


    A'Dam: Adam(like the guy's name)

    Aes Sedai:Eyes Said-eye

    Aiel: Ale (much better, in my perspective)

    Amyrlin Am-re-lin

    Amys: A-mis

    Atha'an Miere:a-THAN mire


    Birgitte: Birgit (mostly right!)

    Taim: Tame

    Julian Sandar: JUlian SANder

    Myrddraal: MIGH-drawl

    Saidar/Saidin: Say-dar/ Say-din


    I'm sure I've got more but that was off the top of my head.[/b]

  2. I've only just finished FOH, so please don't spoil anything.

    My favorite part in that particular book was with Rand and Aviendha, she, "hated him" so much, but yet you knew that she couldn't, and there was so much banter between them, funny!!!

    But I also loved it when Mat kicked Galad's AND Gawyn's pretty-boy arses. Heh, and after that he was not able to support himself without his staff, but faked it. That was nice.

  3. And also, if the Aes Sedai from the Age of Legands said cuindillar is unbreakable, it goes without saying that they had no way of knowing. I mean, nobody sat around and watched it for thousands of years, and if the Dark One is constantly ravaging them with any means possible, little wonder they're breaking!

  4. In FOH, Siuan, Min, Logain, and Leane are in Lugard, and, to quote,

    At last, on a side street just as wide as the main, just beyond a gateless opening in one of the callopsing inner walls, she found the inn she wanted, three stories of rough gray stonetopped with purp[le roof tiles. The sign over the door had an improbably voluptous woman wearing only her hair, arranged to hide as little as possible, astride a barebacked horse, and a name that she skipped over as soon as she recognized it.


    Then later...


    "What is a nine horse hitch anyway?" she [Min] asked, getting to her feet...

    "In this town," Siuan said primly, "it is better not to ask."


    well I'm not in that town and I'm asking!

  5. Right, but who has enough brain cells to read all the books and keep track of all the 60 or so NAMED charecters and multinamed charecters. To quote aznprince001,

    "I really hated it when R.J had the character named Eaganin...It sounded and looked too close to egwene."

    I hated that too.


    :arrow: I also have trouble keeping ALL the Forsaken and Aiel and Aes Sedai AND all extraneous charecters like Eaganin!!! :roll:

  6. And then there's the catch that if an Aes Sedai is told a lie and she believes it is true, she could repeat it as truth,, as long as she felt it was still truth.

    Like when Morgase "dies" alot of people go round saying that "the queen is dead" when she is actually still alive. So technically that is a lie and couldn't have been said... well i think i explained that good enough.
