And those are far from correct as far as I am concerned.

Truus Hooiveld: uu is very hard to describe... there are no examples in English I can think of, so I will have to explain how to use your lips First, pout them as if you want to kiss. Then slightly open them and make a noise.. there's uu!. Now, the ooi in Hooiveld has no clear examples either so I have to grasp back at the yiddish again :p... Remember Fran in The Nanny? If something would go wrong she'd go 'Oy!' That's it, but then a bit longer. The eld in veld is like compelled.

:p ...

Or dissect how you pronounce the word 'you' by letting the sounds roll over your tongue VERY slowly. Snail's pace. It might take a while, but then you notice there is two sounds within the 'ou' part. Now throw away the 'oo' bit and there you have what we refer to as 'uu'. Hm wait, it's actually much easier. It's basically a Welsh kind of pronounced 'truth', replace 'th' by an 's' and what's left is Truus!. (almost)

My dilemma: do Swedes pronounce the name Elsa as Elsa or Elza?
