How to pronounce the word ‘Voorwerp’?

Believe it or not, but that’s still one of the questions I frequently get asked and although I just finished another (English) phonetics course, it’s quite a hard question to answer in an e-mail. (In actual conversations at meetings abroad, people get round this by asking about my ‘thingy’ in space). Now I could just forward everyone to the Wikipedia page about said thingy, but after reading the comments on a recent appearance of Hanny’s Voorwerp on an American Science Show, I decided to finally answer with a video myself, in which I explain the rest. So there ya have it.
