Hello  anewoneyeah,

According to The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, Third Edition
2002, Carl Jung´s last name is pronounced Yoong.


Carl Jung´s last name is pronounced Yoong. The two o´s sound the same
as in the word took.

You can also hear the pronunciation by clicking on the speaker icon
under the heading ?dictionary.?


From Fact Monster: Jung pronounced yoong

Carl Gustav Jung, [kärl goos'täf yoong]

Key to Pronunciation Symbols
oo foot (foot), wolf (woolf), put (poot), pure (pyoor)


Carl Gustav Jung 
kärl goos´täf yoong


The best approximation to the English pronunciation of his last name is: ?Yoong.?


??Carl Jung (pronounced "Yoong").?
