[quote name="WolfTears" date="2019-06-08 19:07:55" ] I have always pronounced it as "gow-lers" because... well, that's how "gao" is pronounced in Chinese and Japanese. How in the flying squirrel does it turn into "jail-ers". Like I get it, it's a pun, haha funny. But it doesn't make any dang sense, lol. I'll never be able to see it and pronounce it that way... [/quote] Same here. I understand on an academic level how it's a quirk of old English vs modern English, but it also being spelled like the onomatopoeic word for monster roars, and it being a more monstrous sort of dragon... I just can't get my brain to read it 'correctly.'

I'm lucky in that I played Fallen London some years ago and already ran into the world gaoler. Apparently it's a super old way of spelling "jailor" so that's why it looks weird and yet is pronounced as such.

They were released in June- pride month

Gayolers confirmed?

I first came across it while reading Chaucer's Canterbury Tales for a Lit class several years ago. We had to memorize and recite the prologue in its Middle English pronunciation, so most of the words stuck with me.

I am still pronouncing it "gay-oh-lor" and none of you can stop me.

:K The English pronunciation fairly easy to suss; imagine the G said like "giraffe", and break it into two syllables. "jay-oll". It used to be a hard G, like "gift", but softened over time. I'd bet money the spelling we have today is due to Daniel Webster. He had a rather "that's really dumb" attitude to a LOT of English spellings lol. Frankly we're lucky we don't spell it "jale".
