By popular demand, here's a list of some of the words in the Empire setting and how we usually say them.

These are simply guidelines, and you won't be bludgeoned over the head if you say things differently. There are no hard and fast rules -- as many people have pointed out, pronunciation could vary depending on nation, accent and culture.

If there are other Empire words you're not sure of, please let us know and we'll add them to this list.
