    Re: Surale pronunciation

    It's not a name I'm familiar with so I can't answer it. Unless it's a common name in another language, you would have to ask the author how he intended it to be pronounced.
    Note that you misspelt the author's first name - it's Bernard.
    I looked the book up online and it says it's about Polish and American cultures but the name Surale doesn't appear in the précis I read. It doesn't sound like a Polish name to me. It sounds more Indian. I would probably read it as "Suh-rah-lay" but that could be completely wrong.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
