Hello IrishEyes,

SITCHEZ.

You are on the right track.

A lot will depend on how you use your own language to pronounce words.

No offence is meant or intended.

So Sit-Jez is not far off.

Have fun, it is a wonderful town full of coblestone streets and quaint historic buildings.

thanks a million Jonny, will check out those links and places you've mentioned.

Sit-jez is more or less what I have been saying, just didn't know if I was right or not!

Thinking about English pronunciation (if I'm not wrong): you should say "Sit-jas". The "sit" is stressed, and the A of the "jas" is quite neutral = a/e (in English sounds like a/i).

Or using an example, would be like joining the words sit and chess (with short final S)

Having had the worst holiday of my life there, I would suggest it needs an h put in after the first S!
