I need to get back to practicing my vee-oh-lin.
I only ask because of an interesting conversation at work.
"... let's call the whole thing off."
There this the Viol which English term for Viola da Gamba, or Leg Viol which is it's own instrument family having very little in common with the Viola or Violin
......you like tomayto, I like tomahto, you like vee-ola, I like vie-ola
Correct pronunciation is
Whenever I see people write "viola" when they mean "voila" I'm tempted to mimic their sentence, ending with "... and viola, a large violin."
The right pronounciation is: "Bratsch". It comes from the sound it makes - when you step on it....
..or the sound it makes when we have a solo after an hour and a half of trombones in one ear and the piccolo in the other...
Viola is a female given name, pronounced "vyola," I believe.
We've all been deceived. "violino" is pronounced "vee-oh-lee-noh."
Vee, vie, voe, vum. (German pronunciation?)
There's an expression, "oy vey" - that's what I say to this discussion :)
The French have violons. Not to be confused with title loans.
As a vee-OH-list, I say "vee-OH-lah."
