Hi folks:

Can someone kindly help me with the correct pronounciation of a couple of
names?  Pretty important when you are making a doco for sure.  The words in
question are:

*Marri      ...  Is it pronounced like Merry...   or   Marr  ree*
Okay and now for a cockatoo...

Baudins.   ...Is the correct pronounciation Beau dins?   or  Baw dins?

Thanks as always for being such a great resource!
