SPEED Channel Logic...

Postby Driz » Sun Apr 07, 2013 2:49 pm

We are all well versed in the sub-par delivery of Motorcycle Racing on Speed... but I was wondering if you, the wisest of forum-ness's, could explain two SPEED ch logical thought processes.

1. I've had gripe with the pronunciation of Lorenzo as "Loren'th'o" for a long time... However, using the pretense that a European Spanish 'Z' is pronounced as a 'TH', would not Marquez be "Marque'th'"?

2. If you have to shoehorn 3 more Progressive commercials in the programming someplace, would the laps 16-18 (6 to 4 laps remaining) be the best placement?

..just venting a little after a great race. :puke:

The 20 yr old Spanish Kid racing Rossi for second was pretty badass, too - taking the position back, but losing it; good racing. Since when did Moto GP have actual racing in it?

Per Lorenzo ....
They asked him how he pronounces his name. He said "Loren-tho" is proper.

Shit I had to wait for and on a download of the race. the battle for 2-4 was great. :alien:
Can hardly wait for this weekend to get back on the track. Even if I am old, fat, and slow. and on a bike that doesn't have enough HP to get out of its own way. :mrgreen:

Lorenzo has a lisp when he talks. The proper way to say he name is with the Z .. I asked my Aunt who is a language / speech teacher.. So I'll believe her over the dumbass American commentators on speed channel..

The Castillian Lisp
However European Spanish, as a general rule, noticeably differs in the pronunciation of these words, with casa being pronounced as you’d expect with an “s” sound, but with caza being pronounced differently. Replacing the “z” sound is what’s called an unvoiced “th” sound (think, theory, etc). Called the Castillian lisp, this difference in sounding is the case for the majority of Spain, and as such the casual student of European Spanish would pronounce Lorenzo with a “th” sound, or ‘Lorentho’ if we’re spelling things phonetically.
This is the same reason why you will hear the Spanish track of Jerez pronounced “Hereth” (the “j” being properly pronounced as an “h”, and the “z” pronounced as a “th” as we just explained) by international commentators. But these same announcers seem to flub the rule when pronouncing Lorenzo’s last name, so what gives?
As we said before the “th” pronunciation is only a general rule, and there are pockets of Spaniards who ignore this rule completely, or have varying forms of it. Primarily located in southern Spain, we have dialects that practice ceceo, seseo, and distinción dialects. These three dialects vary as to whether they pronounce words like casa and caza the same and with a “th” (ceceo), the same but with an “s” (seseo), or differentiate between the two with “s” and “th” (distinción). While the majority of Spain uses distinción dialects, the southern portion of the country sees the use of ceceo and seseo.




Not Jorge's personal speech lisp.

Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, and Cubans can't even speak Spanish. It's more Spanglish than anything.
