Oh god. You know when young kids read words wrong, but they come out with words that still sound like words? Turns out I was so young when I was first playing I did exactly that, and never paid attention afterwards. After looking at how all those words were spelt I realised I say them all differently to the spelling.

I barely know what Armadyl is but I'd pronounce it "Arm-a-dial".

Sara-dom-in.

I always thought Sigil was "Sigli", but looking at it I'd say "Sig-ill".

Guh-thix, nothing wrong here I'd say. I don't know any English word were the "Gu" at the beginning is pronounced "Goo".

I pronounced Ardougne, "Arra-dawn", but reading it again I'd say "Arr-doug-nee"

Arm-a-dil - Armadyl
Sara-do-min - Saradomin
Sig-ill - Sigil
Guth-ix - Guthix
Ar-doughne - Ardougne

They are the ones you had asked for. When I first started playing Ardougne was the one town none of my friends could say, we went through phases of calling it Ar-down, Ar-Douge, Ar-dough-nee.

As for Karajama I  pronounce it, Ka-ra-ma-ja. I know its wrong but I don't mind :p

Armadyl - Arm-A-Dill
Saradomin - Sara-Dome-In
Sigil - Sij-Ill (I'm almost certain that's how you do pronounce it anyway lol)
Guthix - Goo-Thix
Ardougne - Errr, none of the above.  I know for a fact that I say it in my head wrong because it sounds ridiculous, but it's just how I pronounce it.  I pronounce it as [Are-Doo-Je] (the "Je" being a soft J, like how you would say it in French).  Sounds pretty dumb, I know :mellow:

There's no such "soft j" sound in Ardougne if you pronounce it in French. The closest way of spelling it in French I know of is something like arr-doo-ine and even then the "i" isn't exactly correct. If you know how to pronounce the "

All my options were there except for Ardougne.

I pronounce that Ar-doyne

Simply because that's how it was officially meant to be pronounced (I remember Jagex making a post about it somewhere), but before that I said it as Ar-doog-ne :suspect:

Also, someone asked about Scimitar... I said it now as Simitar (Silent C) because I got told off for saying it like Skimitar :yes:

I say Karamja as Ka-ram-ja.. purely because that's how it's spelt. :suspect: I didn't really think anyone would have a problem with Karamja :yes:
