I haven't been asked the question but if you don't mind me answeringRight, Alex. You are a native German speaker (aren't you?)
What IS the correct way of pronouncing "Lutz"?
I am used to hearing the British commentators saying "loots". But, watching these livestreams recently, I have heard the Canadian commentators saying something like "lutch".
So, which way is right? (If any!)
Or, given that Mr Lutz was Austrian, does this open up another can of worms with regards differences between how Germans and Austrians pronounce things...?
Sorry for taking us away from the names of current skaters, but this was too good an opportunity to miss!
I usually hear English commentators say it like "nuts", but with an L at the beginning. But the U sound is a bit different in German. The audio files of dict.cc are actually quite accurate in this case you should easily hear the difference.
I'm admittedly not familiar with every single dialect, but I don't think there would be much difference if someone from Austria said it.
