onamae wa?


Explanation:
the way that the word is spelt is the way it is said. to break it down, all vowels without a constanant is spoken by itself, so onamae wa would be said: o na ma e wa. 'o' is said as in the 'o' in hot and spot, where as the 'e' is said as in the 'e' in bet and get. I hope this is understandable.
