It's pronounced roo-bee (so, like dubious).

I believe it is pronounced exactly the way the english word with the
same spelling, describing the precious gem, is pronounced.

You can see a pronunciation, along with a sound clip, here:

Dubious is only pronounced doobious if you're American. :slight_smile:

Hi --

I wonder why Matz didn't give Ruby name with Kanji letters.... and
I've no clue if my friends asked me why Ruby Programmers call
themselves Rubyist or Rubycian.... sigh

Matz has said that a Ruby practitioner is a Rubyist.

Well, I am Hungarian :slight_smile: (btw in Hungarian, Ruby is pronounced as in Japanese). I guess I am mostly speaking American English, but I don't think so this is the main cause 'dubious' came to my mind when looking for a suitable example - the reason was that I never heard it pronounced differently... (I met only a few native British English speakers, though)

Cheers,
Peter

I am still waiting for Matz to record this "I am Yukihiro Matsumoto and I pronounce Ruby as Luby" sentence and put it up somewhere on the internets.

Thanks David.

According to http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruby
Ruby was written in Romaji then Katakana, it's being read: rubii
or perhaps (sorry i'm not an english native speaker) in English
pronounciation might be: roo bee
AFAIK Japanese is so proud of Japan, that's why I wonder why Matz
didn't name Ruby in Kanji Letters first, and then provided its
translation in Katakana (銉儞銉) and Romaji (Ruby)

Hi,

Ruby was written in Romaji then Katakana, it's being read: rubii
or perhaps (sorry i'm not an english native speaker) in English
pronounciation might be: roo bee

I pronounce Ruby as lu-bee when I speak in Japanese, and Ruby (as red
jewel) in English.

AFAIK Japanese is so proud of Japan, that's why I wonder why Matz
didn't name Ruby in Kanji Letters first, and then provided its
translation in Katakana (銉儞銉) and Romaji (Ruby)

I am not fond of being cryptic for rest of the world. :wink:
The name of the language should always be in Roma-ji (alphabets), even
in Japanese.

聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽matz.
