^^yeah, I used to pronounce tein "tine"...cause thats the german pronounciation of "ei"
haha, you pronounced a japanese product with german pronounciation.

Proper Japanese pronunciation is "Tayn", rhymes with "rain"

Also when i was at SEMA, the Tein representative pronounced it like this also.

Well, that rule generally applies to english too. But thats germanically based I suppose. Oh well, never claimed to have knowledge of English phonetic translations of Japanese.

its tah-nah-beh, and i like to call 5zigen, "Go-Chicken."
I know its stupid, but i dislike it, when people pronounce Mugen, Mew-gen. It's MOO-GEN, damnit! toh-mah-toh, toh-may-toe... same difference. English is a complicated language...
