You sure? Because I've always heard it pronounced as Bahl(with the long a), by GW staff and anyone else I talk about 40k with. Bale is how it's pronounced in most other depictions, but to me it's just one of those things that pronounced differently in this particular setting. Much like how virtually everyone pronounced vox as 'vox' and not as 'wox'.This is the correct form. Although I still pronounce it like the first syllable of balance in my own head.
I'm pretty sure it's pronounced barl since that's how it says it's pronounced on here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baal unless I'm reading it wrongI always pronounced in 'Barl', but I believe it's supposed to be pronounced 'Bale'.
I've always pronounced C'tan with a hard 'k' sound as well, Suh-tan doesn't have the same 'feel' to it (and sounds like you're mispronouncing Satan to boot).The one that always gets me is c'tan. To me that's cuh-tan but I know some people say see-tan
Ro-booty Gull-im-man is the audio books' pronunciation IIRC, despite 'Ro-booty' sounding utterly ridiculous.Roboute Guilliman is another one which gets argued about. For me this is row-boot gull-i-man but I'm not 100% sure
