Catalan term or phrase: Calixto
En la palabra "això" X se pronuncia como SH en "show" o "rush" en inglés. Me interesa la pronuncia del nombre CALIXTO en catalán: ¿la X tiene el mismo valor de SH o lo que se oye es KS o hasta S?
Gràcies!

Calixte
Explanation:
Se pronuncia "KS", como en "taxi" (|'takzi|, "exacte" (|akz'acta|), "èxit" (|'ekzit|), etc. Al estar la "x" en posición intervocálica la sibilante se pronuncia sonora. (Por cierto, en mis transcripciones no he podido poner las "e" abiertas y vocales neutras donde corresponderían, sorry).
