On Polish Orthography

My brother is a plaintiff in the case against Shaun McClusky (full disclosure, yadda yadda yadda), so his name showed up in some documents submitted by Chris Roads of the County Recorder’s office.

Roads spelled his last name Preszelski. That would be pronounced Pre-shell-ski, which would garner odd looks at family gatherings.

I made a crack about this to an attorney, who responded that I have no standing to complain because it’s my brother’s last name.

By the way, the original spelling was Przstrzelski. Count your blessings.

Oh, how is it pronounced? Just like it’s spelled.
