Heir to the Empire: 20th Anniversary Edition Preview: Annotation #7: Heir Mitth'raw'nuruodo

 Star Wars Books on Facebook has released the latest in a series of preview annotations for Timothy Zahn's Star Wars: Heir to the Empire: 20th Anniversary Edition.   Annotation #7 involves a curious random factoid that doesn't have much to do with the story but focuses on what can sometimes be lost in translation.


"A small thing that I never would have anticipated, and never even knew before I was invited to a Star Wars convention in Munich: The "thr" combination apparently doesn't exist in German, or so I was told. German Star Wars fans therefore have terrific difficulty pronouncing Thrawn's name." -- TZ

It would be curious to know what the German pronunciation or attempted pronunciation of Thrawn ends up sounding like.
