 Get "pronunciation" right, and the surname will come easily.

IPA is something like phonetic [d?rl] or phonemic /durl/. Tricky part is the vowel, which is dark, close to the [?r] in bird, or, as James says, squirrel. The vowel is not [u], as in [du?rel]. I?ve often wondered the origin of this pronunciation. It must be some British dialect.Bruce> On Jul 17, 2015, at 6:46 AM, James Gifford  wrote:> > Hi Laura,> > It's "DURrell" like squirrel.
