[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Pull Request #976 Add English pronounciation of "Krzysztof" to en_dict
By krzysz00:

@jaacoppi Thanks for merging this in, and I hope I've picked the correct balance between "how my name gets adjusted for English speakers" and "how it's pronounced in its native language".

(It'd be interesting, though probably a quite nontrivial refactor if nothing else, to allow the synthesizer to synthesize certain words using a different language. This feels like it'd come up in some other languages, where tagging things as "English loanword" might be less of a bother than trying to get the best approximation to the pronunciation out of the synthesizer.)
