Let they who have never mispronounced a word that they'd only ever seen written and never heard spoken out loud cast the first stone It's not me, I pronounced "gradient" wrong for AGES (wrong "a" sound), and probably many others I have purged from memory

what happened to "the u is silent" that i seem to know from japanese? it was super wild to have the german dub of naruto call the guy "sasuuuke"; clearly it doesn't apply to every u, or it'd have been "narto" and "sakra", but i would kind of expect it in kitsune? kids? nay.

Afaik the u isn’t silent, it’s just unvoiced. You make the shape with your mouth and blow the right amount of air without tensing your vocal chords. It’s real obvious if you listen to a Japanese native speaker say “tofu”, the word ends with rounded lips + a large puff of air
