...I think you messed up the poll a little...mellow.gif||

But yes, I hear mispronounciations all the time, and I tend to make a fuss over the proper pronounciations of names and such. sleep.gif It just...hurts my ears to hear them pronounced wrong...

i guess the "american" way of pronouncing it is "an-ih-may," the "an" rhyming with "fan," the "ih" pronounced like the "i" in "pissed," and "may" like the month. like "animation" with out the "-tion" sound. technically, it's wrong, but it seems to be pretty widely accepted as a pronounciation of the word, since that's what i hear the most.

i tried editing the polls a little, hopefully i got it somewhat like you originally wanted? biggrin.gif;;

Well, the common convention is to pronounce it as "Anime", like "Animation" without the "Shun", and while that dosen't stick to the japanese katakana-ation of the word, it works well enough, since Anime is a borrow word in the first place.

Here's what bugs me; "Main-Gahs!"

Toby-chan, I agree with you on the manga things. I would say it correctly, and people would be like "What's that?". I would say, "They're Japanese comics", and they'll be like, "Oh! 'Main-gahs!'". Kinda makes my skin crawl.

I don't really care if they do, but I hate people who'll spell anime with an accented "e."

I call it "anime" (like "animation" minus the "tion") like your typical american. I've heard "ann-may" before which is strange. For manga, I've heard people pronounce the first "a" like mango (the fruit). They've also mixed it up and called it maGNa which is just totally wrong. I pronounce the "man" like the "man" in Jumanji.
