English term or phrase: Kineton
I need the pronunciation of Kineton, Warwicks, UK
Maya Kaloferova
English translation:KINNton
Explanation:
I can vouch for its pronunciation in northern England (although the town itself is in the south). The "i" is short, and the first syllable is stressed. I'm told on good authority that it means "The King's Town."
