    Interview: Jan 14th, 2003

    Robert Jordan

    Robert Jordan starts off by "answering a few questions". He starts with a whole slew of pronunciations ... let's see if I remember them all:



    Aes Sedai—Eye-said-eye / Eye-suh-die



    Seanchan—Shawn-chan or Shawn-chawn (I can't remember which sadly)

    Egwene—Eh-gwain / Egg-wain (He was irritated at this one.)

    Tar Valon—Tar-val-on (I believe, I seriously can't remember.)

    Interview: Jan 18th, 2003

    Daniel G

    I had a tape recorder there, but for some reason, the moment RJ started talking, it stopped recording :(. It doesn't really matter anyway, because we left it at the store. This is not word for word what happened, but it's pretty close.


    Alright, Mr. Robert Jordan will be coming in a few moments, and he'll answer some questions for 20 minutes, and then...

    Robert Jordan

    Oh, I can introduce myself.


    Ok, well then, put your hands together for Robert Jordan! (applause)


    Alright, I'm not going to be answering questions for any bloody 20 minutes. And of course, any question I don't answer here, I'm sure to answer at the signing. But first off, its Nynaeve. (Laughter) It's Egwene. Not Eegwene, not Egweenee. Egwene. (Laughter) Cyndane, Semirhage, Aiel, (etc.)


    NOTE: If you want to find out accurate character pronunciations, read the glossary of The Eye of the World.
