    How do you pronounce this word?

    How do you phonetically pronounce, in English, the word "hermle"?
    Hermle, as in the German clock movement manufacturer.
    Thank-you.

    I am not a teacher.

    If I were going to talk to someone about that, I'd pronounce it like "her-mull." I'm not sure if that's how it's supposed to be pronounced in German. If I found out, I'd pronounce it like the Germans would.

    I dont know how English speakers would pronounce it but as a German I can tell you how we pronounce it... just say "Herm-lay" without putting as much emphasis on the "y" as you'd normally do when pronouncing Herm-lay

    it's hard to describe but I hope you get what I'm saying..
