christian nutt danced around singing:
>i also know a peter nguyen. people say "n'guyen" basically. (as opposed to 
>"ing'uyen" i suppose.)

Hmmm.  Here it is pronounced "new-yen" I believe, but I might be wrong.  It 
might actually be "ing-yen" -- I'll have to pay more attention next time 
roll is called in a large lecture.  (Over 40% of students at Berkeley are 
Asian of one form or another, so you can guess what our roll call sounds 
like.  :^)
