Guillotine, Lugermorph and Vaccinator were never mispronounced in my experience.

I thought Phogistinator was FLOG GHIS TATOR.

I hear a lot of people in chat wanting to buy a "Loojurmorph" and a "Gillotaine"

L'etranger (Luh-twahn-jay)

It's French and should be pronounced accordingly. I don't really see why you would type French R with "W" here and "jay" could throw many people off as well. If anyone's interested in how you're really supposed to pronounce it http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%C3%A9tranger

e.tʁɑ̃.ʒe

Remember that great spies master many languages ^^

It sounds more like a w than r in my opinion, but I'll change that if more people think that the pronunsiation I wrote is incorrect

Well it's just if you're preaching I think you should be accurate. If someone came to me IRL and bragged they now know how it's pronounced and put a big fat W where there's supposed to be a French R I'd punch them in the face. I much rather hear it with English or even Spanish R than with W.

http://french.about.com/od/pronunciation/a/r_2.htm <- I can't believe how hard they make it sound :P

EDIT: BTW actually I just pronounce the L'etranger with English R myself when speaking English.
