What is the correct pronunciation of 'Beauxbatons'?
I was wondering about Beauxbatons this morning. In the Goblet of Fire movie, Dumbledore pronounces Beauxbatons as "Bo-ba-tins." It's been many years since I've taken French, but I've always pronounced Beauxbatons in my head as "Bo-bah-tahn" and with only the tiniest bit of "n".
Has J.K. Rowling ever gone on the record as to how Beauxbatons is pronounced? J.K. Rowling was a French teacher prior to becoming a published writer, so I wonder if she's ever shared the pronunciation in any interviews. It seems like a topic she might like to discuss. Or perhaps a native French speaker could weigh in?
