I was having a discussion with my girlfriend about the brand Epiphone earlier today, when the pronunciation of the name came up. I say ep-uh-phone, and she says it like epiphany. Now I'm not so sure what the correct pronunciation is. What does the pit think?

Ep-i-phone.

You say it like it is spelled.

I think you are saying it correct, but a lot of people (including me) say ep-uh-phone (I do it because I tend to slur my words)

Eh-pi-phone/Eh-puh-phone (The difference in how it sounds is not significant enough for me to care.)

Pi as in how 'piss' sounds, not 3.14[...].

One person once tried to convince me that Epiphone is pronounced like Eriphone. I don't talk to him anymore.

How the hell did she get "Epiphany" out of something that clearly says "PHONE"?

I don't think her mispronouncing one word qualifies her as being retarded

But your opinion is welcome I guess

It could have been a play on words, I guess. I'm sure there are other words in the English language that aren't pronounced exactly how they're spelled, right?

She is relating to the word epiphany
and also using 'epitome' as a way to pronounce epiphone

tell her that the word is broken up into "epi" and "phone", the former doesn't matter, but the latter is for the greek word "(to) voice"
