A musician in Iceland has composed a light-hearted song in a bid to help people with the pronunciation of the name of the volcano, which has caused travel chaos.
Eyjafjallajokull — pronounced roughly ay-uh-fyat-luh-yoe-kuutl — has left many people confused.
The name has been formed through merging three Icelandic words: Eyjafjallajokull means “island-mountain-glacier.” Eliza Geirsdottir Newman performed her song for the Al Jazeera.
Playing a ukulele, she sang:
Eyjafjallajokull is a long, long name/ For such a small glacier, with such notorious fame/ And Eyjafjallajokull has caused quite a stir/ And no-one can fly anywhere except the birds/ Please stop it Eyjafjallajokull.
