O-mee-ga or O-may-ga?

In the latest Casino Royale movie, Daniel Craig pronounces it O-mee-ga?

Can someone clear this up for me? :thanks

Thanks for the reply guys! Clear as mud, huh... I guess we'll just leave it up to the person pronouncing it. I will stick with the American version of O-may-ga with the long A. Sorry to bring up a topic that has been clearly worn out! :-d:-d:-d

Just a British thing. Sort of like in the U.S., we say "schedule" and they pronounce it "she-dule." Those wacky loons! :-d

Try it in Dutch OmeeGGGa

To foreigners the Dutch G sounds like you have a fishbone stuck in the back of your mouth and you want to cough it out.

I thought it was pronounced Omèhga in English. Anyone seen Galaxy Quest where they have to deploy the Omega 13? They said Omèhga.

The correct pronunciation is; O'-meg-ah. I'm from London and I say O'-mee-gah! ;-) Shane you missed out Kazakhstan on your list and you're damn right about marrafon! :-d
