Today’s Question by the reader : Carlotta

Author: Paulo Coelho

I’m an italiens girl… I’ve always had a doubt about the correct pronounciation of your surname… so, i was wondering whether you could answer to this question.

Of course, the correct prononciation in portuguese is [ˈpau̯lu ˈko̯eʎu].
But I don’t consider this very important – as long as the message passes across I am satisfied!
