How do you pronounce Luperci?
Stupid question, sorry
#1
As some of you know, I'm writing a story for English which is based off of 'Souls and I'm confused on how to pronounce Luperci.
I say it as "Loo-per-see" but sometimes I see it as "Loo-per-cy" ("Cy" like in "cycle"). Is there a right pronunciation? Also, how would one pronounce "Optime"? I say it as "Op-time" but I'm unsure if I'm saying it right.

There aren't official pronunciations - it's mostly up to your interpretation! Personally, I pronounce them same as you (Loo-PER-see), (OP-time).

I alternate between l - oo - pear - kai and l - oo - pehr - see, but pronounce optime the same as you two. :3

What Sunny says! A lot of people pronounce the different forms way differently, even staff.

A Google search tells me that luperci, pronounced in Italian, should be "loo - PERR - chee" or something like that, but I pronounce it with a hard "c" (like Lorr), and think that most ways of pronouncing it make sense haha.

I feel like the only person who says Optime as "op-tee-mey" but i like when e makes a sound >_>.

As an alternative, do you necessarily need to use those terms? You could always use the terms feral or bipedal.

I've always said Luperci and Optime the way that they look most simplest. Looper-see and Op-time. Secui form however idk how really pronounce. I've just pinned it Sue-key in my head which I'm sure is far off for the most correct pronunciation. xD

"Wolf form" and "werewolf form" would work for a school project, too, so you don't confuse readers with new terms. :> This is a good point by Gen as relevant to your project.

I pronounce it with a hard 'c' sound like "loo-per-kee", though I feel like this is wrong on many linguistic counts HAH. I am the worst pronouncer! Although I do also say "op-time" phew. Thank you optimus prime.

I also support you abandoning confusing terms for the sake of simplicity! Readers from your English class, or even your English teacher, aren't going to know the context of Souls. To acquaint them, you'd need to give them an exposition which probably isn't in your best interest. You're better off using terms most people are familiar with, like Raze said, "werewolf form" or "wolf form" works.

I also encourage you to be inventive yourself! English assignments are a great chance to create rather than work within someone else's idea. It's better to be inspired by something than to outright use the source material (at least, in my general opinion. There are some fantastic fanfiction and fanart communities though!)

Gen, I say Op - tee - may as well (we can blame on all those cultures who pronounce every single letter in a word and have no silents). For Secui, Seh - cue - wee for me and Lupus is pretty simple, Loo - pus. As for Luperci, Loo - per - cee for me.

Am I the only one who pronounces Luperci "loo-per-chee?" :') I also say "op-tee-may" for Optime but Secui confuses my head so sometimes I say "seh-swee" and sometimes it's "sec-wee."

Oh man this is a fun thread - reminds me of the time a bunch of us recorded ourselves saying these words, and character names and the like? Somebody should organize that again :D

For myself, it is as follows:
Lupus = LOO-pus
Secui = Seh-COO-ee
Optime = OP-time
Luperci = Loo-per-KAI

Also I KNOW it is wrong, I really do know it, but I have always - ALWAYS - pronounced Lykoi as "lie-OH-kee" in my head. I have no idea why. It doesn't even make sense so brain, why have you failed me?

looks like i am the minority that pronounces them the way they are spelt. Lu-per-cy(like cycle like OP said), Sec-coo-wee, Loo-pus, Opt-tee-may. i always say them the same every-time and always thought that was the way they were pronounced *shrugs*

Wow looks like I'll have to rethink how these words are pronounced now @_@

As for the actual terms, Lupus I pronounce LOO-pus, Secui as SEC-yoo-ai, Optime as op-TEEM, and Luperci as LOO-per-kai. I understand that most of these are probably wrong, but that's just how my brain pronounces the words when I'm reading or writing them.

I pronounce them like..
Lupus: LOO-pus
Luperci: Loo-PER-see
Optime: Op-time
Secui: Sec-yoo-eye

Also I'm fairly sure I pronounce Anathema wrong xD
"A-na-THEE-ma"

I also say "MY-loss" instead of "MEE-loss" despite sometimes typing it as Meelossss.

Lupus - Loo-pus
Secui - Seh-kwee
Optime - Op-teem
Luperci - Loo-per-see

I also pronounce Anathema as An-uh-THEE-muh

EDIT: As Alaine mentioned the voice meme, here is the first round of the most recent one, and here's round two.

Adrian Raven-Shadowryn Wrote:As some of you know, I'm writing a story for English which is based off of 'Souls and I'm confused on how to pronounce Luperci.
I say it as "Loo-per-see" but sometimes I see it as "Loo-per-cy" ("Cy" like in "cycle"). Is there a right pronunciation? Also, how would one pronounce "Optime"? I say it as "Op-time" but I'm unsure if I'm saying it right.

Will you post your story??? I'd love to read it! :D


On the contrary, I probably have the same pronunciations as you guys ~

Lupus = LOO-pus
Secui = Seh-CUE-ee
Optime = OP-time
Luperci = Loo-PER-see

And while I know that Anathema is pronounced "an-NATH-em-uh", I still say it "an-uh-THEEM-uh" because it will forever stick. lol.

I will also forever say "Moineau" (mwan-ee-you) wrong in my head even after knowing the correct way to say it.xD

I did write a two page introduction where I introduced 'Souls concepts such as the 1988 human extinction, (When I wrote this in class, I messed up and said 1888) Luperci, as well as the packs. I also added in a whole new pack because I really liked the idea of an all-jackal pack (It is awesome and has badass leaders).

I just listened to this and I realized something. I've been pronouncing Belial Massacre wrong. I pronounced in as "Beh-law-lee Mass-uh-cray" because I often miss letters in words when I'm reading things so that's how I mispronounce words and names.

I pronounced Anathema as "An-uh-them-uh" and I really never figured out that I was wrong.

I don't know if I will, or where I will post it.
I will say that some of the names are slightly based off of some families in 'Souls (de le Fonce is one because I don't know French at all as well as Martyr, Messiah, and Pariah de Cristo). And there's the totally unrealistic names: Anthrax, Sarin, and Cyanide Poix. I'm also really tempted to use the Masquerade+Venom family as my next characters. And then there's the names that are so cliché (Sirius Constellation, Lucifer Sin, Kellin Scremiquin, ect). Most of the names are cringe-worthy.

Probably in ooc-garbage??? I mean that's where we're supposed to post our misc stuff :)

I almost wrote a story about Rio's reaction to the red star chaos, but then I realized I really didn't want to explain everything about Souls, etc. so I scrapped it. lol. I did however write a human story based off of this thread (minus the rape) for my Fiction class, and you can read it here if you wanna :)


BTW I am the same person as Lithia Napier lol

Lupus - Loo-pus (pretty standard)
Secui - Seh-coy (don't ask me, I know it's weird and I don't have a good explanation lmao)
Optime - Op-time (Due to my Transformers upbringing)
Luperci - Loo-per-key (This one's forever burned in my mind)
