    I always just assumed the "T" in Godot was silent.

    I guess they will just have to make that Phoenix Wright cartoon that they were talking about so we can know for sure! [​IMG]

    It is - it's also the name of the titular non-character in the play Waiting for Godot.

    The fact the judge think's he's called "Gobo" at first should have been a hint [​IMG]

    It's 1, 1 and 2.

    As Linki says, the T in Godot is silent [​IMG]

    I always knew Godot was pronounced differently, but for some reason, I stuck with Go-dot.

    My-uh, Mee-uh, and Goh-doh.

    A Godot made from Play-Doh?

    Same here


    Just because it's pronounced without a t in Japanese doesn't mean you have to pronounce it that way in English.
    If they wanted to force that pronounciation, they could have left out the t.

    Godot is an actual english name. Pronounced Go-dough as in Dough-nut or Play-Dough I think they make some reference in the game to the absurdist theater play "Waiting for Godot", by Samuel Beckett, hence why the character is named Godot.


    Anyways the first two are pretty obvious for pronounciation. Maya, is May-Uh and Mia is Me-uh.

    Not that obvious I'm afraid. In the US, Maya is pronounced My-Uh.

    I just call both the sisters My-uh. It doesn't get too confusing, unless mentioned in conversation. Therefore I'd just mention "the younger My-uh" or "the older My-uh." Godot, it's just Goh-dot. Go-doh is the Japanese pronounciation of his name.
