Graduation and Pronunciation

Here’s a chance to relive (if you were there) or experience for the first time (if you weren’t)  the hilarity of my attempts to pronounce the names of all the graduands from the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the Winter Graduation Ceremony for the University of Sussex at the Dome, in Brighton, last month.  I blogged about this here and there are also some pictures here. My stint commences at about 1:35:30 and finishes about 1:48:00 so there’s not too much of me to put up with, and if you get bored with my voice there’s always the irrepressible Chancellor, Sanjeev Baskar, to keep you entertained…

    I tell students that I will make an effort to learn how to pronounce their names correctly, but that they shouldn’t be offended if get it wrong, as I can’t pronounce my own name correctly.
