NAH (law) - siss. It's latin.

Rammus is derived from latin too. It's RAM (ham) - miss.

Shaco is SHAY (lay) - koh (low). It's a reference to the word "shank".

Udyr is OO (shoe, true) - deer.

Like Master Yi. It's simply, Yi. A lot of people (typically Americans) say Master Yee. There is no 'e' in Yi, it's simply; Yi.

Like in this video; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNVP7Cic68I

(Cho-Gahth)
(Nah-Sus)
(Rah-Mus)
(Shay-Ko)
(Sin-gd)
(Sye-Awn)
Sliver without the "L"
(Ooh-Dur)

That's how I say them.

Cho, Rammus, and Nasus with a short a (as in fast). Shaco with a long a (as in bay) is probably correct, but sometimes I use a short a for him too.

Singed, like the word. I can't imagine what would possess someone to pronounce it like "winged."

Sion with long i (as in fly).

Sivir with two short i's (as in lid), but this could easily be wrong. Starting with a long e (as in Xena) might make more sense.

Oo-deer.

One other hero about whom I'm still unsure is Kayle. I pronounce it without the e, rhyming with "bail," but as a name, "kay-lee" might make more sense.

There's been tons of red posts and the champion spotlight videos to clarify this;

It's shayco, long A.

It's master Yi like Yee but shortened.

Kayle is like Christian Bale

Singed is sinj like burning something.

Sion is Sigh-on

Sivir is like sliver without the L, as someone said.

Ooo-deer is Udyr, as pronounced by riot.

Rammus is Ram us , such as battering ram.

Chogath is pronounced with the A Like in the word bad, name with nasus.


Quote:
Gaffadin:
Since I'm British I pronounce Warwick as "War-ick", since Warwick and Warwickshire are places in England and are pronounced like that.

All my American friends pronounce it War-wick and I have to keep telling them that they are wrong.

I would appreciate a Riot post telling all my friends that they are wrong and I am right. As an Englishman I should be considered the authority on the Queen's English and pronunciation thereof.




It's War wick. If it were the Queens English you'd be right but it's American English. Seeing as Riot is an American company based in the U.S.
