Words and Pronunciation

If your Web browser is showing spaces in the name Bahá'í, or shows it as Baha'm, then the following will show you the letters that are missing in the various words that appear on Bahá'í pages. All of them have an acute accent on them...

Baha'i, Baha'u'llah, Bab, 'Abdu'l-Baha

The letter á (accented a) is pronounced "ah",
similar to the a in far.

The letter í (accented i) is pronounced "ee",
similar to the e in see.

In saying the name Bahá'í the á
and the í are run together.

Although I am not a perfect example for pronunciation (and I hope to record a better one) I have pronounced the following words in a .wav file and an .au file...

"Bahá'í Faith, Bahá'u'lláh, 'Abdu'l-Bahá, The Báb,
Shoghi Effendi, Alláh'u'Abhá, Yá Bahá'ul-Abhá"

Alláh'u'Abhá and Yá Bahá'ul-Abhá are both what Bahá'ís call "The Greatest Name".
