    pronunciation

    I am having a lot of problems with pronunciation of foreign place names and people names in the English language.Could you recommend you a dictionary or website that can help me with it?
    How do you say the following?
    Fritjof Capra
    Robert Cailliau
    John von Neumann

    And a lot more!!!!!
    I don't know where to look for their pronunciation?

    Re: pronunciation

    None of these are English names: Capra is Austrian, Caillau is Belgian, von Neumann is Hungarian.

    With English applied they would come out as

    Frit-yoff Ca-pra
    Robert Cay-loe
    John von new-man
