    I would say it'll probably sound more like the (2nd?) e in Yelena ... :)

    Welkom op het forum!

    Ik ga niet akkoord. In het Russisch spreek je Yelena niet uit zoals Helena in het Nederlands. De e's zijn [ɛ] zoals in bed, niet [e] zoals in Peter.

    I agree and know that the e(s) in Yelena isn't (aren't) pronounced as our long e [e], but certainly not as the a in standard (Oxford) English, which resembles our ei/ij. Perhaps more in some form of Scottish :)
    I don't think Deeltjesversneller pronounces the a as a lot of Flemings do with words like
    "Ik heb een deet" or "Ik zal je een e-meel zenden" :eek:


    En dank je voor de verwelkoming!
