A+ to Beaver's reference which was the first "and only one I believe" written up article actually naming the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all the broadcasters and even print folk tapdancing around, below and above trying to pronounce or spell yet another Icelandic mouthful - beautiful language but oh so difficult to master....
Not making fun of the implications of one of Mother Nature's temper tantrums - but the name is impossible and the writers here were wise to avoid it ...
Of course - you were correct at always. Still your explanation to me of "j" and its pronunciation was a bit over the top - a tendency not unnoticed. My reference was strictly limited to the news outlets I am privy to - all in the U.S. with an occasional international one on television.
How a simple fun post can be turned against a group of people astonishes me but the forum has a bit of a mean streak which perhaps gives it more interest and
oom pa pa which the majority of people prefer.
The stumbling phoentics practiced were not all American people but those from the European nations as well affected by the dust cloud. I didn't mention them out of courtesy -
Enjoy your visit - Iceland sounds like a unique and individual place.
