Public Service Announcement

The Dalai Lama is pronounced “Da-lai (with “lai” sounding like “lie”) La-ma.” Not “Dali Lama” (as in Dali like the surrealist artist). Where the second “a” goes in the pronunciation is beyond me.

Americans, stop butchering this. I cringe every time I hear it. Especially news people. You suck.

Just like Genghis Khan. It is more like “Jen-ghis” rather than “Gang-ghis.”

Hear it, learn it, do it:
Dalai Lama
Genghis Khan

This has been a public service announcement. Have a nice day.
