    Notice the pronunciation symbols in brackets in the first sentence. It looks as if it should be pronounced this way:

    [!@#$%^&�dinã də soˈsyːʁ]

  2. From Wikipedia:

    <<Ferdinand de Saussure (pronounced [!@#$%^&�dinɑ̃ də soˈsyːʁ]) (November 26, 1857 – February 22, 1913) was a Geneva-born Swiss linguist whose ideas laid the foundation for many of the significant developments in linguistics in the 20th century. He is widely considered the 'father' of 20th-century linguistics.>>
