Anyway, lately me my friends have been arguing about the pronounciation of Ibanez.
Is it pronounced: i (as in if) bon yez, or I (as in I) ban ez

I hope i was right...

I say 'eye-bah-nes', although my friend says 'ih-bah-nes'.

Does it really matter? =P

I think it's actually pronounced ee-bah-nez but I say eye-bah-nez. There has been threads before so search for it.

Actually, it's spelt 'Ibanez' but it's pronounced 'Throatwobbler Mangrove'.

There's also nothing worse than people saying foreign words in a foreign language, unless they're speaking properly in that language, if that makes sense.

Like English people ordering a croissant in a French accent.

Plus this at cafés/restaurants:

Waiter: Can I take your order?
Customer: Yes, I'll have a ham and cheese panini.
Customer 2: Yeah, me too.
Waiter: Ok, two paninis.


Yes, ok, great, order a sandwich. But please, don't use a foreign word for 'sandwiches'. Panini in Italian means sandwiches. So, technically you're ordering a "ham and cheese sandwiches". F*ck! It's a toasted sandwich.

I guess, except toasties are triangle shaped, whereas paninis are long.

Well, no. What is different is the bread. The loaf is the common bread to use in the British Isles but on mainland Europe loaves are far less common. There are more baguettes, etc. Baguette being the French word for the long bread that you would use for 'paninis'.

So, what you should really order is a toasted baguette. And while you're at it you may as well order it ALL in French. So, "je veux un baguette grille avec fromaige et jambon".

Paninis still means sandwiches.

Yeah, but if I went into a British pace and ordered a cheese toastie, I'd expect a manky, greasy thing in a triangle shape, whereas if i asked for a panini I'd want a toasted long bread thing with scorch marks on it.

I know what you'd expect, I'm just saying that it annoys me. Using foreign words to try and make something seem fancier. It backfires, obviously.

its Eye-ban-nez..doesn't matter though
I'd just like to say I fall into the 5% of us on this site who aren't metalheads.

Ok. To clear it up, it should be pronounced ee-ba-nez. People from English speaking countries will pronounce it eye-ba-nez, because of the difference with the i.

And anyone who's posted as pronouncing the z as an s, you should definitely be shot.
