is it : stare or is it : stire?
i gotta know.
We've had a few threads running on this some time ago. I believe the technical correct pronounciation is "ssssssh-ti-er", but here in the States, we settle on "st-eye-er" or "st-i-er".
do a search and can find a few threads. one should have fella from Austria with a audio file on how its pronounced.
How about Schtyer Mahn Leasher?
It's like people that say "porsh" instead of "porsh-a" for Porsche. I think in America, it gets messed up. I heard everyone calling it "stay-er" throughout the years. However, I know that's incorrect. It's definitely "Schty-er." But as long as you're not speaking near someone from Germany/Austria, I don' t think it matters
My buddy pronounces it "stay-er" and it drives me nuts! How on earth do you get that from Steyr?
I say tomato, you say tomahto
I say Steyr, you say Stayr
tomato, tomahto, Steyr, Stayer
But I am the one with the gun so I am right.
Here ya go:
