Exclamation Pronunciations

I really dont know how to pronounce some names in the Zelda games. First off the Koriki, i pronounce it like this [crow-ki] also with the Deku i say this [du-ka]. Then theres Farore i said it like saying the word "force". Can someone help me out on this one...but even though you tell me i still might keep saying it that way because i learned it that way, but id like to know how it sounds.

Re: Pronunciations

I say it like this,

Kokiri: Ko-Kee-ree
Deku: Day-Ku
Farore: Fa-roar-ee

But ofcourse I am Dutch, and my readings are quite different to the English ones.. I hope it helped though.

Re: Pronunciations

This is how I pronounce them:

Kokori- Ko-kor-e
Deku- Day-ku
Farore- Fa-roar

But how do pronounce Darunia? You know the sage of fire.
That's something I have NO clue how to say.

I believe Farore it's pronounced "fay-or-eh" with the r silent. Otherwise, fa-roar-re.
