How to pronounce....

Do you say "gym-CAN-uh" or "gym-CAH-nuh" ??? Both are used around here, what about you??

If the world was truly a rational place, men would ride sidesaddle.

I think either is correct so it just depends on which one you like better :)

I've only heard gym-kah (car)-na.

If I heard it like gym-can-a I'd think the speaker was an American :P
