This is a no-brainer, though, as there's a clear, consistent pronunciation used in-game.

I go with the in-game pronunciation


I always read it as Bal-thee-air but ya what Fynn said.

But this when I'm feeling fancy

I might have used them all at some point. None of them would be a shock to hear like Tidus.

that only works for people who have hearing though. deaf folks still need help.....

Isn't the pronunciation completely irrelevant to deaf people, then?

But I really don't think it makes any difference from a cognitive perspective. Like, if you are born deaf, sounds are abstract anyway, so it's not like they can "hear" the pronunciation from reading text. That's why I literally don't think it matters if you're deaf.

That's an interesting question, and one most of us can't answer.

I'm not completely sure it doesn't matter, though, Fynn. Lots of deaf people learn to talk, and I believe a lot of that is taught by feeling the throat and learning vocal vibrations. So I'd say based on that alone, the correct pronunciation of things probably does matter to some deaf people.

That said, I don't think anyone would really care if a deaf person who was speaking to us pronounced something wrong. Learning how to talk when you're missing the most important sense to do so is goddamn amazing.
