Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/22/16 9:19am Cliff (moving to Prague!):

Hey, I recognize that drum beat! Thanks Ken!
  Wed. 6/22/16 9:20am ˫̃ ..̺ ˫̃ ..̺ (:

Here's how you pronounce TsuShiMaMire'.


'Tsu' is pronounced in an unvoiced dental/alveolar stop with the tongue between upper-mid and high positions. Take into account the 'S' is a coronal sibilant with a secondary stress.

The 'ShiMa' part contains both back close vowels and pulmonic consonants so please voiced them with aspirated glottal spiranto but neither rounded nor unrounded.

Pronounce the 'MiRe' ending part with a non-sibilant fricative on a pharyngeal manner. That is, treat the first as a consonant that momentarily stops the air flow through your mouth followed by the second syllable that you pronounce by forcing the air through a small gap.

In simpler words, follow the pattern: nasalised > velarised > palatalised

According to the "Half-Baked" episode of Viceland television's "Weediquette", sales in the Federal District are forbidden, but permitting possession and gifting has provided cover for some sellers, e.g. an intercepted delivery-guy can just lie.
