    How to pronounce Nitrean

    How do you pronounce "Nitrean"?

    Is it: ni-tree-an
    or: ni-treen

    Is the "ni" done as "nigh" or "nih"?

    Just curious.

    Ni = nigh, sounds like hi
    trean = sounds like lean with a "tr"

    Hope this helps.

    Uh oh... looks like we've got some disagreement.

    I always read it in my head as Chris described it.

    Seriously; which is it?

    I was gonna ask the same question but BG5150 had helpfully already asked.
    If the two owners don't know which one it is, what are the rest of us meant to do!

    ps should be seeing an order from me soon. (Soon as I know what it is I'm asking for! )
