Pronunciation of "Pouët"

category: general [glöplog]
How do you even pronounce the title of this website? It's never been clarified.

I would say "poo-et" or "poh-et", but I'm sure the umlaut makes a difference.

So what is it?

That's not a pronunciation, that's just noise.

Maybe I'm reading too much into the word, but I was initially wondering how the word was pronounced, but now I'm wondering if it means anything (I figured the trumpets on the background were a clue)? The word sounds French to me.

It's pronounced as the sound of a wet fart 💨

Oh if only there was a search engine that could confirm whether pouet is a French word and what its meaning is...
that would be against foebane's policy to question everything (ideally on pouet first)

Finally googled, and it popped up:

("Pouet" is the French onomatopoeia for the trumpet sound.)

Ooooh, it's as simple as that, is it?

Well, you told me from the beginning, Maali, it's just I didn't really pick up on it.

So really, it could be pronounced as anything? At least it stands out.

Oh, come on! You just found out it's a french word, so why don't you look it up in a french dictionary? Spoiler alert: It's /pwɛt/ in the International Phonetic Alphabet.
