    Smile How to pronounce "Pausch"?

    Hi, guys. Recently I've been reading the book The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch, a Carnegie Mellon University professor, who delivered the famous speech, which bears the same title. I have come to page 120 and like it very much. I would like to recommend it to my students, but I do not know how to pronounce the professor's last name Pausch.I consulted my Oxford Dictionary of Pronunciation for Current English but found this name is not included. Would you please tell me how to pronounce "Pausch"?

    Re: How to pronounce "Pausch"?

    There are quite a few video clips of Randy Pausch available online. I went to a TV interview of him with Diane Sawyer. She pronounced his name /paʊʃ/.

    I hope this is helpful,
