So Jita

Is it pronounced Chee-tah? Like Cheater?

Or Gee-ta? Like a reverse GIF?

How does it work?

Who decided it works like this?

Also, general naming and pronounciation thread.

Popular contentious words:

Nukular vs Nuclear

Aluminium vs Aluminum.

Ketchup vs Katsup.

Tomato vs Tomooto.

Penis vs Pinus.

Thoughts?

The only incoherent thing is how GIF is actually pronounced JIF, like the peanut butter company.

Is it “Make ISDs Work Day”? :wink:

It’s back breaking-labor suppressing anyone who doesn’t toe the party line, but someone’s gotta do it.

Either apply pronunciation rules according to IPA, or choose your favourite language to interpret the letters.
So, being from the Federation, I decree it is ‘zhi ta’ :wink:

I hate to say it, but the yanks are right.

Sorry.

Does it matter what they call Jita? You can’t get a word in edgeways there in local.

It is pronounced: The hellhole of EVE
