    Re: Pronunciation of "Marcq Saint-Hilaire"
    From: Jean-Philippe Planas
    Date: 2006 Feb 2, 11:55 -0800
    As I don't know what is the convention to phonetically write French sounds in English, I believe the "sounding" result is the same with this other spelling (C) :
     
    mark sen-t-eelair.
     
    Note: the H of Hilaire is to be ignored like in many other French words with biginning h letter.
     For instance, "h?ritage" is pronounced ->eritaaj .

    I thought there would be a "t" in there. Also, might the last
    syllable be "lair", combining the "l" and "air?"
