Toyota is pronounced different in Japan. I heard Hyundai is pronounced HyunDIE in South Korea?

More like a difference in emphasis. The thing that a lot of non-Asians don't get right when it comes to pronunciation is intonation. Most Asian languages are heavy on intonation and a native English speaker is used to a language that's not where every syllable's intonation matters or where there's a standard intonation based on the beat.

I think in Korean (I've worked with quite a few) it's more like Heyuun-DAY. The name is used right at the end of this commercial. A lot of Asian languages utilize really complicated single syllables.

Years ago I was told by a person learning Chinese that there are 5 or 6 intonations available for any syllable.

That's how we say Subaru here, they have been trying to make us pronounce it like the Australians, but resistance is strong. The long A is our colonial form, and the Maori language uses the long A too...so it's pretty hard to stop us doing it that way.

I find North Americans have a strange way they emphasise sylables, and when telling them how to pronouce a Maori word, they will repeat it back wrong, say it a again, and they respond the same way. Like trying to get an Asian to pronouce and English word, no matter how many times they try, they just can't get it right.

I got my drivers license in 1968 and regular gas was 24.9 per gallon. Esso 100 octane was 32.9 per gallon. My summer job paid me $1.60 per hour. Not really all that cheap considering my minimum wage summer job. Back then a married couple netting $100 each per week was considered middle class.
