How do you pronounce terms, fish and usernames in your head?
 
I thought this would be a fun thread because I constantly find myself pronouncing things in a completely different way than they are spelled, haha. For example, Boredomb, I pronounce bored-deh-bomb, lol. Djembekah is dee-jam-bekah.

I pronounce it Boredom B. Lol I used to pronounce pleco pleeko but was told it's plecko. Lol

I used to pronounce bichir as if there were a T in there. A couple weeks ago the girl at petsmart said her ichthyology professor told her it's "biker".

Lol I pronounce it bisheer. Lol

BeeCher is another popular pronunciation.

In my head, Bichir = something that rhymes with witch-er
