New Blog Post From Veronica Roth: Divergent Pronunciations

Have you ever caught yourself wondering how to pronounce a word or name in Divergent or Insurgent? If so, Veronica Roth put out a list just for you!

Here it is:

I also posted this on my tumblr, but I thought I’d put it here too, to cover all the bases. I’m only going to list the ones people have asked about— hopefully I didn’t miss any!


 Tris: TRIH-ss (As opposed to “treece” or “tryce,” both of which I’ve heard.)
Tobias: Tuh-BYE-us
Uriah: Yer-EYE-uh
Jeanine: Juh-NEEN


Divergent: Die-ver-jen-t
Abnegation: Ab-neg-ay-shun
Amity: Am-it-ee
Candor: Can-der
Dauntless: Dawn-t-less
And the big one:
Erudite: Air-yoo-dyte


There you have it.

Were you surprised by any of them or were you right all along? Let us know in the comments!
