You should pronounce Dewi like Davy, but then replace the v with a w. And Driegen... well Drie is pronounce Dree and -en is pronounced uhn. The -g- is something else... very hard to explain to a non-Dutchy. It's like the ch in Jiddish mesjpoche (which means family)... yeah sounds kinda vague :p

Here is a blog about Dutch pronounciation... search for a 'g' and listen to how it sounds. Hopefully it'll make it clearer for you

I think I know what you mean.
It probably sounds similar to the "r" sound in French.

I'm not sure how the r in French sounds... but if you do not pronounce Channukah as Hannukah then that is indeed how to pronoune it! And about that blog I mentioned, I had the link but didn't paste it... so now I lost it

LOL, it's just Ag-ness. Her real name is Agnes and she's English. She just changed the spelling. Her real name is Agnes Hollins

Well, I ment that it sounds correct when NOT pronounced as Hannukah, but in the tradition Jiddish language.... but, it's too hard to explain really... noone's hurt when you pronounce it with an English g, so :p
