    Default Pronouncing "Bvlgari"

    Do you pronounce it like this: Bul-gar-E

    or like this: Bul-gair-E

    Just curious on what the proper pronounciation is.

    Well, it's sort of like bul-gar-e. You don't stress any particular vowel.

    I have found the oddcast text to speech demo quite helpful for pronunciation. http://www.oddcast.com/demos/tts/emotion.html
