6, please, if someone will help me with just a few pronunciations.

EDIT: The words with which I have trouble are: Feiruzeh, Yazidiyeh, and Minyara.
Well, I knew this was going to be an issue, and I haven't done any research to see if I can find a pronunciation, but I doubt there is a good source for these. So, our usual advice is just to give it your best effort. With the more common foreign languages we usually have someone in the LV community to help us, or there are on line resources. So, give it a go!

I'll figure it out ... or go for the field goal!

Hi Kevin--I checked out one of the names, and I found a YouTube video with an audio pronunciation of Minyara (at about 0.24 seconds into the video). Maybe you can find other helps with Google searches. (I've accidentally stumbled onto YouTube videos with real people saying difficult place names or surnames on several projects where I've been stumped on pronunciations.)

I agree with Larry, though--give it your best shot and march on! :)
Kind regards,
Lucretia

I can now say that I was close with at least one of the three!
