Here in the Midwest we would probably pronounce it: "DOO- Roess", "DOO-roez" or "DOO-rawss". Over in Engurrland... the "D", I understand is more of a "J" sound. I kinda like it... Is there a difference between "Deuce" and "Juice"? :D

yeah one will win a game of tennis and one will make you pee. :)

I pronounce it Djor-OH And Djor-OHz for the plural.

If I ever end up in a game of tennis, I'd probably pee....

tis a good defense mechanism ;) :p

So see? There is no wrong way to say any O' the names in the SW universe. Kinda like Han's name. I say Han (like Hans Cristian Anderson :p) and I've heard it said Han (like Hand minus the "d")

'Hahn Solo' would be the most heard pronunciation. I say 'Hann' as in hand. but that's because I was taught to pronounce things that way. After all these years of being erroneously annoyed at you silly Americans with your 'completely irregular pronunciation problems', I finally accepted that it has to be the way George pronounces it. 'Hahn'.

The Duros thing is a compromise. I would think that george would say Dor-ohs but that was deemed lazy pronunciation when I was at school and so I adopted the English version - Djor-OHz. It requires a little more effort to say but I think it sounds nicer. More definite and crisp. :)

I also pronounce it Hann, as in H-A-N as in Hannah and not Harn.
