    Default Pronounciation of "Munch"

    Could you guide me regarding the accurate way to say "Munch", as in the painter ?

    The proper Norwegian pronunciation is [ˈmʉŋk].

    If you don't know IPA symbols, this could be written in English as 'moonk'. Like the word 'monk', but with a 'oo' vowel, as in 'soot'.

    (The vowel is slightly different than that 'oo' in English, but it is the closest to it.)

    I'm not sure if English speakers pronounce it in an Anglicised way - perhaps they just say it like the English word 'munch'.
