To me, it’s important to have some idea of how recurring words in another language are pronounced. I do not speak Romanian, although with all the official document translating I’ve been doing for the last couple of years I finally recognize the meaning of a few words in the language.
However, if you don’t speak Romanian either, the way their words are pronounced is not necessarily obvious to English speakers. I asked my good friend and native Romanian speaker Emil Chirvasuta (who is also the best and most competent whole-house generator installer in the entire Shenandoah Valley) to pronounce some of the words you may encounter as you learn more about the TIDAL WAVE operation.
