How do you pronounce Greta Thunberg?
(pronounced grAY-tah tOOn-bairk): the teen activist sailed the Atlantic over the summer in a zero-emissions yacht to speak at a UN climate change conference. She has spoken out about the issue in dozens of countries
and recently sparked climate strikes in schools across the globe.
A note from Mentele: “The final ‘g’ in ‘Thunberg’ is typically softened by Swedish speakers into something like ‘yeh’ in English: ‘tOOn-bairyeh.'”
