Fhlfflpi 1 Sec The Editorial Page J Don't Take MY Word By FRANK COLBY NAZI Of or pertaining to the ruling aarty of Germany. r * * * Since the President's defense speech, this query has come from many readers: "Mr. Roosevelt said NAT-see, rhyming the first syllable with fat, hat Was he correct?" The President, one of the few speech precisionists in American lublic life, might have used a little jroader "a" in Nazi. The German 'a" is pronounced "ah." Webster's lists Nazi as NAHT-see. But, NAHT-see or NAT-see, never rhyme Nazi with "jazzy." nor pronounce it "NAY-zye." Nazi is a coined word from the German "Nationalsozialistische Dartei." In Germany (Deutschland, pronounced DOYGH-Iahnt) the swastika is known as the "hakenkreuz," pronounced HAH-ken-kroyts. It was adopted in 1918 as the official emblem of the Nazi party. Hitler's first name is not Adolph, but ADOLF. Do not say "Ad-olf nor "AY-dolf." The correct pronunciation is: AH-dolf. The word REICH, meaning empire, has the German fricative "ch" as in ach, dich. Do not rhyme the word with like, nor give it an "sh" sound. Say the word RYE and finish it with a "ch" made solely with the breath against the soft palant.
