Mysha origins: The Dutchman (Michael Smith): meanings? (96* d) RE: origins: The Dutchman (Michael Smith): meanings? 23 Jul 16


Yeah, I saw a performance of Michael Smith once, where he told the audience about that Makem and Clancy story, and about how it had nothing to do with him. But it worked for them, I guess.

I think I'd go for "Zighder Zay", BTW. I don't think there's an English equivalent for the actual "ui" sound, but "ow" sounds too heavy for me. Thus, while "igh" isn't the right sound either, it seems like a better approximation. Of course, that may depend on the accent you're being taught.
