The world of the Malazan Book of the Fallen is filled with unique words that do not exist in our own. This page gathers pronunciations of these words as favoured by authors, Steven Erikson and Ian C. Esslemont. The pronunciation guides are either our best efforts at transcribing words spoken in audio or video interviews or are provided in writing from the authors themselves. The source of each word's pronunciation is provided so that the reader can listen and decide for themselves.

Note: The Malazan audio books generally should not be considered the authoritative source for pronunciation. Erikson has stated that he was not consulted by their producers for pronunciation until the recording of Forge of Darkness.[1]

This is a work in progress. Please feel free to add any pronunciations you have found in author interviews. Please use this article's Talk Page to suggest changes to pronunciations.
