Unfortunate pronunciation[edit]

From time to time, foreign names have an unfortunate meaning in English, e.g. Lee Bum Suk. "Al Solh" is another of these, because under the Arabic sun letter system the "l" sound of "Al" is changed to match the following "s" sound, giving "As-Solh". Is there a way of providing the article with this pronunciation in a serious way, i.e. without it coming over as toilet humour? PMLawrence (talk) 04:53, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
