How do you pronounce Braue - as in Braue Addition.

In my mind I always have been saying "brow-e".

Is it "brow", "broy", "brow-e"????

Well, if it's French, it's "brow" or "brow-é".

All the times I have heard it pronounced (including non-magicians named Braue), it has been "Brow-ee" I believe it's German, and it probably should be pronounced more like "Brow-eh" but "Brow-ee" is what I've always heard.

I was watching a video on e-magictrick.com a while ago-and Shawn pronounced it "brow-ee".

If it is a German name then brow-er is correct.

Lennart Green pronounces it brow-ee on his first tape. I say it like that as well.

Well, that's Simon for you; he always did take the high-Braue approach.
Cheers,

We have a funny language, where words change pronunciation and meaning.

how do we pronounce the the word '*omb'
when we put in place of the '*' a { 'c', 'b', 't' }

After the stories about this guy taping people and writing notes about the card tricks he saw, I'd bet some of them called him by words other than his name anyway.
