    In most languages, 'i' is pronounced as 'ee', and 'e' is pronounced as, 'ey', but North Americans are inclined to pronounce things wrong.

    Classic examples are: Iraq is... ee-rock, not, eye-rack. Same thing with Iran... ee-rawn, not eye-ran

    Fuchs, the German word for fox, is actually pronounced with the "u" like "oo" (like in fool, tool,...). But since Mr. Fuchs is american, I´d go with m3g´s version.

    cool thread btw, I often have similar problems. Sometimes you can learn about certain pronounciations on youtube vidoes (gear demos), worth giving that a try if you are unsure here and there.

    Well yes i know this as i am Iranian :jo:hide but i was wondering how is it supposed to be pronounced? Im guessing it supposed to be EE-buh-nez but is it pronounced Eye-buh-nez in America? Doesnt really matter. Im not a fan of them anyways.

    Correctly, ee-BAH-nez, but I think everyone (including myself) incorrectly pronounces it EYE-buh-nez.

    I used to pass a Japanese restaurant on the way to work called Fuku.

    I was always tempted to call them up just to see how they answered the phone! :eek:

    I wish I had the dough to be able to go Fuchs myself. The Blackjack 21 would float my boat pretty much.
