dramatis personae

One of the readers of this blog indicated to me that it would be a good idea to show the pronunciation of the literary term 'dramatis personae', which I used in my blog on the sketch Four Candles. I'm only too happy to comply with this request. 

ˌdrɑːmətɪs/ˌdræmətɪs/drəˌmætɪs pɜː/əˈsəʊnaɪ/pɜː/əˈsəʊniː

'Dramatis personae' is, of course, Latin and means 'persons of a/the drama'. It's a fairly formal and technical term referring to the characters of a drama. I used it in a jocular manner in my blog on Four Candles.
