    Pronunciation question

    How would you pronounce the last name Przeworksi, Polish native speakers (ie Kamka )? Like Джеворски in Russian or Javorski in English?
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    Разве не Пшеворски?
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    But I believe that it devoices to Ш (sz) here, so Пшеворски is probably right.

    Я знаю. Но здесь перед rz стоит глухая "p", поэтому звук оглушается.
