Name pronunciation[edit]

Hi! Would it be worthwhile to note that, although her name is often pronounced like "Valenté", she pronounces her name like "Valen-tee"? I heard her explain this in an interview on a podcast. I find this interesting, especially since the narrator of the audiobook for Deathless pronounces it like "Valenté".Itsdavidbaxter (talk) 21:10, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I think it's worth mentioning. I don't suppose you could turn up the podcast in question, or some other source where this is documented? (I'm not questioning you, I've heard her pronounce it myself [and for the record I'm confused as to why she'd go with that pronunciation], we just need to address WP:Verifiability.) Also, incidentally, I'd write the way she pronounces it "Valenti". —chaos5023 (talk) 22:55, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Hey, Thanks for your input! I will be able to link to the podcast. I shall do that in the next day or so. Stay tuned!Itsdavidbaxter (talk) 15:51, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Would I be able to cite a podcast that's only available through iTunes or RSS feed? is there any way to directly link to it?Itsdavidbaxter (talk) 00:29, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Limited accessibility is fine; see WP:PAYWALL. An iTunes web link should be fine, or no link at all, as long as the podcast can be identified sufficiently for somebody to be able to go find it. —chaos5023 (talk) 23:14, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
