Pronunciation[edit]

I've been bold and changed the pronunciation from /ˈbəʊl.dɜː(ɹ).aɪz/ to what Dvortygirl's audio file seems to me (/ˈbaʊd.lə.ˌɹaɪz/), since it feels extremely unlikely for the l to be ever pronounced before the d, and the /ɹ/ being dependent on rhoticity and in a different syllable than the vowel following it, or the preceding vowel being long, don't look much more realistic. However, this section could really use a native English speaker's attention — I'm not one. 77.209.36.72 16:17, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
