    Eyjafjallajokull - pronounced ay-uh-fyat-luh-yoe-kuutl-ul - is the name of the Icelandic volcano that threw up plumes of ash clouds causing airspaces across Europe to close down. Eliza Geirsdottir Newman, an Icelandic musician, sang an exclusive song to Al Jazeera to help clarify the word's correct pronunciation. The video includes a bouncing ball to help karaoke singers pronounce the volcano's name. [April 19, 2010]
