For Home Is Series With Pronunciation

General Notes: When I came up with my names, I thought they were pretty straightforward. That was before I learned a bit about languages and how to pronounce other tongues. Many people have trouble with them, so I am providing these guides to help.

I have created several languages for my books. In Yeff, many names have the tilde [~] on the left upper side of your keyboard. This denotes stress, as in Greek, just with a different symbol. To pronounce it, say the h sound and breathe out harshly, like hh!. The addition of a tilde to a name denotes great hardship. It can be added at birth, as in Ryonne~'s case, or at any time, in a Zheien's life. This is a Yeff custom, so it is not widely practiced among Zheien colonies, except in Ye~, or in Ye~ Prov of Zhea~, or families of Zheien royalty. In my Home Is Series, Laura has a lot of trouble pronouncing Yeff. Ryonne~ is very patient with her, as are most Zheien.
