That's how American's pronounce it. In England, we say "Van Goff".

Yeah I also mentioned that in the comments elsewhere, I just went with Van Go because most people people on FJ (especially those online at the time I posted this) are American.

That's because FJ is full of FREE spirits.

That's true, people who only speak english can't pronounce it,
I speak german, which is pretty close to dutch, i also know how the dutch pronounce it, I just tried to give you a mere idea of how it's pronounced, because I couldn't think of anything in the english language that sounds like it...

I actually study English, and I was cramming my phonology coursebook earlier today.
When I saw these pronunciation threads, I simply couldn't resist.

Oh, And I'm a native speaker of Dutch! Probably should have mentioned that too.

it's pretty much like any anglicized foreign vocab (French 'r', every east asian language, etc.)

They want it to be that way because they have been taught that way their entire life.

They don't want to change because it would be too much. Math problems would get a different answers at the end if it went the logical way and there is absolutely no problem with that.

They just made up some arbitrary rules that does not belong in math.

You seem to be quite the expert. Why don't you go find a college professor and explain to him exactly why he is wrong and why you are right.

A quick google search will support my claims, any subtraction can be rewritten as an addition of a negative. They are, essentially, the same operation.

I will hereby state that evidence for my claim is conclusive, therefore my claim is correct.

Any further arguments on your part mean you're either a troll or a special kind of stupid.

Why would it be wrong for it to be done in such logical manner?

If someone would need brackets he would use them and count those numbers by themselves. But when a problem have no brackets then there shouldn't be any. It's quite logical.

Right now that is not the case because math likes to fuck things up for us. I do not like that.

Math should be easy, not a fucking riddle on how to do things.

Take a couple college courses in math, see if you keep your opinion.

People who are smarter than you and infinitely better that math think it should be this way, who are you to say they're wrong?
