Eyjafjallajokull - pronounced ay-uh-fyat-luh-yoe-kuutl-ul - is the name of the Icelandic volcano that threw up plumes of ash causing airspace across Europe to close down.

Icelanders have pointed out the rest of the world's mispronunciations of the volcano's name, which has been described as "strange" even by native Icelanders.

Eliza Geirsdottir Newman, an Icelandic musician, sings an exclusive song for Al Jazeera that clarifies the pronunciation of Eyjafjallajokull.

The video below includes a bouncing ball to help karaoke singers pronounce the volcano's name.
