Hi Awgust!

Difficult question... How's Awgust pronounced?

In Germany the name is spelled August and pronounced like this: au like ou in "bound", u like oo in "book" (just a little bit more open). As a name the first syllable is stressed and as a month the last syllable.

In Russia the month (probably the name as well) is spelled Avgust and pronounced like this: a like ah and u like the German one. The stress is on the first syllable.

Regards, Satu
