Just making sure, is the 'bel' in Ah-bel like saying "apple" with a b, or is it more like ah-bell?

Rather in between those two extremes.

Aw, jeez... not another Norweed thread... :tongue:
 
I need to know how to pronounce "Niels Abel"
In English, it's Niels as in neils, emphasis on the first syllable, Abel cannot be pronounced in English. The closest you can come is Abel as in the Norwegian abel, but with an American accent. If you have an English accent, then you probably don't know who Abel is anyway.
