How do you pronounce 'italki'?

Hello!

 

So the other day I did a podcast with Chris Broholm from Actual Fluency (you can hear it here: http://actualfluency.com/afp-08-lindsay-dow-language-lover-blogger-tefl-certified-tutor/) and the question came up of how to pronounce itlaki!

 

I say "eye-talk-eye", Chris (and others I've spoken to) say "eye-talki-ee" but maybe others say "ee-talk-ee"!

 

What's the most common, or even correct (if there is one!), way to pronounce it?

Hi! I say ''I-T-A-L-K-I'' such as sounds in Spanish or Romanian. Have a good day! :)

That's a good point about broccoli Romelle. I always think people are really stuck up when they say brocco-lye! I hope I haven't sounded like a snob saying eye-talk-eye all this time! Haha! :)

I sometimes pronounce it as i-stalk-i. Since some people stalk other people here.

 

But seriously I pronounce it as the Spanish do appearantly. I = like the ee in bee.
