How do you pronounce 'Chien' anyway?

This is an oft-asked question, so here's the answer:
  • it is a single syllable
  • the 'Ch' is hard, as in church or cheese
  • ignore the 'i'; it's silent
  • 'en' is the same as in hen or then

Where does the name come from? It is Chinese, and it literally means "Money".

This concludes today's lesson. Carry on.
