Ray-Klee? :

I don't mean to be argumentative, but not according to Raichle's own advertising, oh so many years ago.

(jamesdeluxe: Pronunciation for Americans or we non-euro / non-Swiss-German types.)

I still enjoy hearing how much people like their Vol-Keys! :

Hey mister, do you sell them thar Dine-A-Stars? No, what about die-nam-icks?

</font>[/quote]The correct pronounciation for Dynastar is "DEEN-a-star," same as Dynamic are pronounced the same way ("DEEN-a-meek"), even though they're an Austrian or Italian company (I think Atomic bought them out - great race skis and nowadays great carving skis). Blizzard is pronounced as "blee-ZARD," another Austrian ski company.

Whereas the Germans think Sweitzerdeutsch is a disease of the throat and tongue, and what they think about Osterreichdeutsch (Austrian) is the way we treat most Polacks or Aggies, country bumpkins with fresh manure on their boots and some in their hair.

Thank you for your addition to what's been a fun little discussion. Maybe you couldn't tell, but my tongue was firmly in my cheek; so, no offense intended, but . . .

  • Deen-A-Star, incorrectly pronounced Dine-A-Star by many Americans and Texans in particular - is a French company.</font>
  • Deen-A-Meek, incorrectly pronounced Die-Nam-Ick by many Americans and again, Texans in particular - was a French company. But now they are Atomics - an Austrian company - in Dynamic clothing.</font>
  • Blizzard, is, in fact, an Austrian company as you correctly stated. However, I would take exception to your pronunciation. Depending on how Osterreichdeutsch (Austrian) you want to sound, it would be pronounced Blih-Zard or possibly Blitz-Ard for the more euro-tongued among us.</font>
It's snowing hard all along the Wasatch front, let's arm-wrestle over proper pronunciation on the lifts. Last one down's a rotten egg . . .
