This is sort of embarrassing asking help how to pronounce my native language but...
I'm reading an interesting collection of Pre-schism Brittish saints and the names are incredibly dificult in some cases.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š Is there a general set of rules for prounouncing Anglo-Saxon names of this era?ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š In my head I sort of just Germanize them for some reason, since it sounds kind of neat, but I assume this is incorrect.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š Are there any general rules for this sort of thing?
What ones in particular, if I may ask? It's not too difficult to get the idea of Old English pronunciation, as it was done then. How modern people may, umm, deal with it, is one thing, but I like the sounds of Old and Middle English and think it's nice to try and pronounce names as the people who bore them did..
