I've not been paying attention to the name changes for eldar but I keep looking at "Drukhari" and thinking "Drew Carey" ... That can't be right- (unless the new catch phrase is "price is wrong.")

How is Drukhari supposed to be pronounced?

It's a made up word, make up a pronunciation. I call them "Daiquiri".

I myself pronounce it as Dru-Car-E with the A in car being a bit long. I think it sounds good that way myself.

I pronounce it more like German. I'll try writing it down the way an English speaker would write it:
Drou (as in you)
Kar (as in scar)
Eee

I pronounce it "True Kin" or "Dark Eldar".

But if a GW legal team break into my home and hold a gun to my head, "Drou" as in "Dragon" and "You", "Car" as in "Car", and "Ee" as in "the letter E"

I still thenk the U should have been an A
So I just pronounce it like
drak (track)
Ha (don't know how to say this one, a long aa like Bhaal)
ri (as in read)

DrouKarEee still sounds to much like drewcarey if you say it fist in my mind
I would then go for Druk (as in truck) and hari as I said above
But Drakhari just sounds better to me XD

I say it drew-car-ee, but am not above a little light joshing with Drew Carey.

But to be fully honest, I'll probably continue to pronoune it Dark El-dar.

@ squidmaster I think the way you continue to pronounce it is perfect.
Let's all practice it for a bit XD

Not bad that one, I bet one of the people who came up with the name thought something similar, the bastard for calling us Harry.
Or maybe make it more like Drug carry, cause you know we all carry drugs XD

But on topic, I'll go with CptMetal, but with the emphasis on the middle syllable, and as much guttural 'kkhh' and r-rolling as I can... drou-KAR-eee

This ^^

I make the "h" the "ch" sound in "chutzpah", and I emphasize the "char" part in the middle that this creates.  Get into your best, "I-will-always-be-better-than-you"-arrogant, moustache-twirling, overly-theatrical villain voice and if you're like me you can really have fun with it.

Above all bring out your inner child.  Make up names like you're the best gorram namer of names in all of the multi-verse and be proud of your creations.  cheers

When I am feeling extra-villainous I roll the "r".

I am very excited by the new 8th edition and what it will bring for Dark Eldar.  I have a hard time believing it will be overall worse than our situation as of 7th.  I am always happy to talk wishlisting and fandexes in any edition from 4-on.  I have written multiple fan codexes (3 and a "mini-fandex" which was totally ridiculous), the latest of which (for 7th edition) can be found here.
