Invitations to Commencement for Your Parents and Friends
So that I pronounce your name correctly during the commencement ceremony, I need your help. Please visit the pronunciation website, and fill out your preferred name, pronunciation, etc.
FYI: Carol becomes: CARE-ull. For those of you with more interesting names, please indicate where the accented syllable goes. After all, I have been pronouncing many of your names incorrectly for almost four years (including those with "American" names)! Now that commencement is approaching, I want to start practicing your names so that you parents recognize your name when it is called!
