The component words of LibreOffice, though quite common
international words,
have already diverging pronounciations wordwide.
                                            ^^^^^^^^ :o))

As the same time, the concerns of posters who wonder how it can
be pronounced in their respective languages should not be ignored.

Exactly what made me step in.


Friedrich's German-lnguage version is a good example....

<nitpick> Oh, it is not German language :-) it is the french/english
version spoken by a German</nitpick>

I just wanted to give a quick answer on a simple question. The file at
least gives an idea of what was in the minds creating the name.

Thanks for your nitpicking, Christian ; were I to return the favour I
should point out that Friedrich's file was an example of a
German-language pronunciation of a French word followed by an English
one. In any event, as I hope I made clear in my previous posting, I
feel that more of the same (*mutatis mutandi*, of course) would be
helpful to those in doubt as to how to the term might be pronounced in
their respective languages....


I rethink my proposal for a "recommended" version as long as we don't
leave alone those in doubt.
