A Quick Overview Of Ludwig Wittgenstein
How to pronounce Ludwig Wittgenstein
Wittgenstein was a philosopher born in Austria who spent much of his life in the United Kingdom. Austria is a German speaking country and so his name follows German rules.
If you find pronouncing the 'sht' too difficult on 'stein' you can just pronounce it 'stine' (rhymes with time). You aim for phonetic correctness, so don't be concerned with replicating the German accent. What you should get right is the 'w' which sounds like a 'v'.
