    Ok, I know I am in serious danger of ruining any respectable reputation I may have gained so far on Mibba and also of sounding like a total and complete new, but how exactly do you pronounce Mibba?:oops:

    Is it Mih-buh?

    Or is it Mee-buh.

    Please, even though I feel like a moron, would anyone care to answer this question? :shock:

    As far as I know, it's pronounced Mee-buh, but I pronounce it Mih-buh because it has two b's. :XD

    Psh as if it should be Mee-buh. Mibba is spelt with an 'i', not two 'e's. :hand:

    :tehe: It really depends on where you come from. I say Mih-buh, like most other Australians (except for the weird non-conformist above me).

    Quite possibly :coffee:

    I was always taught that if it's vowel-constenent-vowel you pronounce the first vowel as it's name [A as AY, for instance.], but if there's more than one constenent in between them you pronounce it as... damn now I've forgotten. :XD The other way, I guess.

    But I'm not sure that rule would apply anyway, 'cause Mibba was orginally an acronym. :think:

    There is no right way to say it. It all depends on where you come from really and how you prefer to pronounce it. Just like tomahhhhhto and tomayyyyto.

    :tehe:

    In Australia most of us pronounce it as Mih-bah rather than Meeeee-bah.

    I like calling it Meebs though 'cause the meeeee way of saying it makes me lol.

    Wow, some of your comments literally made me lol.

    I always pronounce it Mee-buh, but since there are two b's I thought it should be Mih-buh. Oh well, I'll just keep saying Mee-buh because I like it better that way.

    Doesn't 'i' in Croatian sound like 'ee'? Which is why it's 'Mee-buh'?

    I swear someone told me that, but I'm not sure if it's right or not. :think:

    I use both. :shifty Either mih-buh, mee-buh or meebs. :XD
