How do you pronounce "Italki"?

I say "ih-talk-ee". But I've heard "ee-talk-ee", and "eye-talk-eye". How do you pronounce the name of this mysterious website? ;-)

I pronounce it as '  eye-tawk-ee ' as I have a strong NY accent !!   :-)

@KP, yes, that's how I guessed its pronunciation, even though in my recording I (incorrectly) stressed the first "i". I can deal with "ih-talk-ee" or "eye-talk-ee" - if you want to think of the site as the language-learning iPhone ;-)

But "eye-talk-eye" sounds like "I talk to myself" in very bad English. Probably not the best promotion for a language learning website haha

I've never thought about that. I think I pronounce italki like the way we pronounce iPhone.

eye-talkie :)
