    So I was reading an english text and I enounctered the following strange words: nebagonagibuop and nebegonalepudown. It's a science-fiction text, so it doesn't mean anything. I just wanted to ask how people on this forum would pronounce these words??

    the queen (gawd bless 'er) would say …​

    "never going to give you up"

    "never going to let you down" :wink:
    EDIT: ah, i thought it sounded familiar:

    mr rick astley would say …

    Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
    Never gonna run around and desert you​

    ne - BAH - go - nah - GIBB - wop

    and

    ne - BAY - go - nah - LEP - yood - own

    according to my dictionary of the Nebago Narunarunan Dezatuu language. In addition to complex patterns of pitch and inflection, proper pronunciation requires dancing awkwardly.

    This guy will teach you how to pronounce them.
    Pay attention to the way he uses his whole body while speaking. It's so majestic...

    Welcome Newlifeform, you are certainly new here. It's just a joke. Maybe you are not familiar with the internet meme "Rickroling". You may notice that these words vaguely resemble the the lyrics.
