Spelt phonetically I prefer to pronounce it hoo-ah-way because it just sounds better that way and there is an H at the beginning of the word! If was pronounced the way the man in the video says it is surely it would be spelt wua-way with no H!
podmizje (4 months ago)
"who-a way" would sound better

As long as the brand name starts with "H", the people will continue ignoring the "W". Either rebrand the name the way it sounds, or accept de facto naming of the brand because majority of consumers are calling it the way they see it spelled.

The correct is 华为 (huá weí). Huá (2nd tone) means splendid, magnificent or prosperous. While weí (2nd tone) could mean act, become, or achievement.

This video saved my life (ok not really) but this had been irratating me for ages.

I'm afraid this video is incorrect, as Huawei is 华为 in Chinese. In Mandarin, 华 is pronounced as 'hua' and 为 as 'wei'. Even if it were to be pronounced in Cantonese (which is not the case, since Mandarin is the standard language across China), these characters would be pronounced 'wah' and 'why'... So the pronunciation of 'wah-way' is actually using two different languages, which makes no sense at all...? This explains why it's spelled Huawei in Latin script, and not Wahwei. Additionally, multinational, billion-dollar corporations generally know the difference between H and W. Furthermore, a white American guy is probably not the best source of learning how to pronounce Chinese words, just as chicken balls and fortune cookies are not accurate examples of Chinese cuisine.
Zhe Li (7 months ago)
it should be Who-ah Wei (make the first two syllables close as one) in Chinese, and actually the guy at 0:47 was pretty close. I down't know why it's Wah Wei in English.

That doesn't make sense. 华为 doesn't have a silent H.

Ian Hollis (9 months ago)
That's sure as shit not how my hundreds of students in China pronounce it. And it's entirely the fault of whomever it was that came up with the current standard romanizations for Chinese in the first place. YOU'RE SAYING IT WRONG!!! (More to the point, you're STILL saying it wrong!!!)

Haw can you idiots not even teach people how to pronounce the name correctly. Either use the Cantonese (voted worst sounding Chinese dialect) method, which would be "wah-waii" OR use the Mandarin (OFFICIAL FUCKING DIALIECT OF CHINA SO USE IT) "hwa-way" inflect your tone up for the first part, and then down for the second Hua = The etymology of the character 华 is derived from "花" which means "flower". This is hinted at in Huawei's logo. The character can also mean "splendid" or "magnificent." Wei = The second character of Huawei's name, 为, means "action" or "achievement." Now that you have been educated on this topic, act like it and prove you earned that second Sapien in Homo Sapien Sapien (aka Human).
