The How Do You Pronounce thread

    the "How Do You Pronounce... " thread

    I'll start it off...

    "ether"

    is it "ee thur" or "eh thur"?

    -----

    answer a question and/or put up your own word that you're not sure how to pronounce

    In dutch:

    -i-thur

    but in dutch the
    a=e
    e=i
    i=y

    so it tends to get confusing..
