    what is the correct pronunciation of the real name of the artist better known wth the stage name of Ulay? I think it could be [fʀaŋk ˈuːvə laɪˈziːpn̩] (and his nickname [ˈuːlaɪ]) but I'm not sure.
    Vielen Dank im Voraus.

    Almost correct. There's a schwa missing in his last name: laɪˈziːpə

    I thought it was /-ən̩/ phonemically but phonetically [-pn̩] (there's a small vertical line under the [n] indicating a syllabic vowel). Thanks anyway.

    You are right. Actually, it is free variation; both, [-ən̩] and syllabic [-n], are possible realizations.
