That said though,

Fed
Red
Bed
Ten...........not feeeeed, reeeeed, beeeeeed or teeeeen in any situation. If it were spelt 'Teakin' then your example would then put up a case for both pronunciations. But it is spelt in the same vein as the examples I gave so ...... I still don't see the 'Teeeekin' way as correct. Anyway, not like it really matter is it lol

Round my area I think the 'tech-in' pronunciation is a little more popular, but people still use both.

Out of interest how do you guys pronounce the fighting game of the same spelling?
Fetid
Feces
Recession
Repeat
Return
Rekindle
Tepid (but you probably pronounce that differently than we do)

Tekin Schmekin.

I suppose with Tekin being an American company it would be pronounced like that by their employees.

Meh, some fair examples there. Like it was mentioned before, if only English grammer had some hard and fast rules eh!

Thats my bad on the fighting game, it is a different spelling isn't it.

I guess like I said before, cos of accents etc we would all say it different anyway. Just like aluuuuuuuuuuuminum

They probably fired him shortly after that...

Names have their own pronunciation, no grammatical rules to follow.

I say "Tech-In", like the video game.

I found it really weird when I was watching videos and they were calling it "Tee-kin".

Just for fun!

Well, you know we call it Tee-kin here in Virginia.

How do you pronounce that Newquay thing? Dang Brits.

BTW, congrats on the Nats, Chris.

Not actually. It was named "Aluminum" (without the extra i) by a British chemist. Some anonymous Brit wrote in to a journal that it was a bad name and added the extra "i" because he felt it sounded more classical.

We just choose to spell it the way the discoverer did, not the way some grammarian does.

Ta-mee-ya as in Miyamoto.

The "tam" and "eye" in Tam-eye-ya are not proper syllables...
It's just how an American would mispronounce the name.
