What is the phonetic of the word "Buddh" spoken in time 21:47 to 21:48 minutes of this video. I am a novice in phonetics.

The phonetic of the word Buddha is wriiten as [bud̪ːʱə] in this wikipedia article

However, to my taste, the english prononciation of the B and U in the word Buddh does not matches exactly with that of the video.

Let me know how to phonetically write the word "Buddh" spoken in time 21:47 to 21:48 minutes of the video.

  • Which language are you asking about: Pali? – ChrisW Jul 21 '17 at 13:04
  • I think that i wrongly tagged pali language. I meant phonetics in english. I need the phonetics in english of the word pronounced in hindi. – MathStudent Jul 21 '17 at 13:06

    @changzhao I think mathstudent means using the latin alphabet as it is pronounced in English to represent the sound of the Hindi word – Hugh Jul 21 '17 at 14:07

The question is tagged with "Pali language". Pronunciation in Wikipedia is written probably for Sanskrit. The movie is in Hindi. And English is another language. Pronunciation in different languages is different. For example, in Russian we pronounce Bood-dah.

When we study phonetics, we need to understand, phonetics of which language or dialect we study.


PS:

I meant phonetics in english. I need the phonetics in english of the word pronounced in hindi.

@MathStudent, the phonetics in English is of English words. The word pronounced in Hindi is Hindi word. Do you want phonetics of English word "Buddha" or of Hindi word "Buddha"?

Anyway, see https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Buddha

Pronunciation:

  • (UK) enPR: bo͝odə, IPA(key): /bʊdə/
  • (US) enPR: bo͞odə, IPA(key): /buːdə/
  • IPA(key): /bʊdːʰə/ (only in technical contexts) – approximation of Hindustani [ˈbʊdːʱə], which features a geminate ‘d’ and breathy voice on the second ‘d’, neither of which is idiomatic to English

That reference gives three different English pronounciations: one English; one American; and a "technical" one that's meant to sound a bit like Hindustani.
