Subject: Iben Hjelje? Any idea how to pronounce?
From: Peter T.

Just saw The Emperor's New Clothes (cute film, but not very deep) with this very beautiful lady, Iben Hjelje (I probably even have the spelling wrong), as the costar. She was also in High Fidelity. Anyone have the slightest idea how to pronounce this name? Swedish? Norwegian? Purely scientific interest.....yours, Peter T.

Hi there! I am from Denmark. Let me see if I can help. The "I" is pronounced like the "ee" in the English word "bee". The "H" is silent. The "j"s are consonant "i"s, in other words they are similar to the letter "y" in the English word "yes" (no "d" sound). In a sort of phonetic English, it would be:

EE-ben yAy-leh

Upper case indicating stress - the "A" being similar to the "A" in the English word "jar".

Her last name IS spelled Hjejle, not Hjelje. Does that make a difference in the Danish pronunciation, Old Possum? I bet not ... "Yah-leh" ... if the A is like "jar".

Ah ... I just listened: "ee-bun Yigh-LUH". Where "Yigh" is like "High".

Google Translate (translate.google.com) insists that she's spelled Iben Hjejle and has a little loudspeaker that plays audio of the word you're looking for.

Can't rely on digital pron. Local usage better.

Last night, looking for a restaurant we were directed to make a very quick turn onto "Pull-TEE-nee" street and almost wrecked the car, wetting our pants. We did make the turn onto PULTnee on time-- but Slammin Jammin BBQ is now forever earwormed to us as "That Italian Rib Joint," and we are at a loss how to name it in our fones or GPS devices to find it again so we can call ahead for takeout.

This is true. An American tourist asked me way to the Spanish sounding Ang-gle-siah Street recently, and it took me a second to realise that he wanted Angle-sea Street.

Pronounce her name any way you like, but in "The Emperor's New Clothes" she was stunning. Watching her in that remarkable film I had the same feeling I used to get watching Audrey Hepburn.
