In logic, we have Burali-Fòrti's paradox which is named by Cesare Burali-Fòrti.

Now I need to know the exact pronunciation of "Burali-Fòrti" (of which I only know the overall pronunciation) to translate it into Chinese from the sound.

So is there any native Italian to know how to pronounce "Burali-Fòrti"? If so, please use the International Phonetic Alphabet for Italian to show how to pronounce it.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Simply /buˌrali'fɔrti/, I'd say. Do other people agree?

    @DaG Maybe you can write it as an answer, just to give closure to the question.

/'tʃezare buˌrali'fɔrti/,


/'tʃezare bu'rali 'fɔrti/ if one prefers to keep the two parts of the surname distinct.

    Sorry for not having put that as an actual answer before: thanks. Let me throw in, as a bonus, the pronunciation of “Cesare”: /'tʃezare/.

    The secondary accent can also be a primary one, that is, uttering two distinct words, depending on the speaker's preferences.
