Ryan says words in some weird ass ways. This thread was made to keep a list of the words he has pronounced differently than what is displayed in the English dictionary.
 
Sword - Original Pronunciation: "Sohrd" Ryan Pronunciation: "Sawohrd"
 
Robot - Original Pronunciation: "Roh-bot" Ryan Pronunciation: "Roh-buht"
 
Spiderman - Original Pronunciation: "Spahy-der-man" Ryan Pronunciation: "Spahy-der-mehn"
 
Feel free to add on.

Zombie - Zam-be

Huh. I always thought of him pronouncing 'robot as 'robit' and 'spiderman' as 'spidermin'

#4 Posted by Alexander (1721 posts) -

Niche can be said either way: /neesh, nitch/ but it just sounds damn odd when I hear /nitch/ and Ryan may be the only person I have ever heard say it that way.
 
Also, I went to my bookshelf, got out my dictionary, looked up Spiderman and it's not there.

What is going on with your Spider-Man phonetic spelling? 

#6 Posted by eroticfishcake (7782 posts) -

Which state does Ryan come from anyway? I'm not so good with differentiating American accents.

#7 Posted by Systech (4078 posts) -

He only does it to sound fresh. It's not any state's accent for crying out loud.

#8 Posted by Valames (726 posts) -

Lol, he just does it for fun.

I think both the big boys are natives of that state CA...

I'm pretty sure he purposely says words different.  Haven't you ever done that for fun?

#11 Posted by pause422 (6172 posts) -

He does that purposely. Not for any other reason.

In Fr0Br0's dictionary, Spiderman is the second word on the first page.

Ah right. I was just wondering, not that I was going to generalise since I've heard of few Californians sound different.

Mario: Pronounced "mar-io", says "mayr-io"
 
He only says those words those ways for the lulz

#15 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

You suck with those pronunciation phonic spelling things.
 
Br3adfan has it right, Robits, Zambies, Spidermins, sah-wards.

...Guys...he does that on purpose. He knows how to pronounce words.

Some of the people in this thread seems to think he has some crazy Californian accent.

California has an accent?

His pronunciation of "robot" comes from Futurama.  It's what Zoidberg calls Bender.

I don't know about Ryan but John Davidson saying Mario annoys the fuck out of me!

#23 Posted by HazBazz (1901 posts) -

I don't think he was the first to do it, but I stole his pronounciation of Pokemon. Pokemans!

#24 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

he pronounces Heihachi and Jun from tekken as HAIHAKI and YUN :P
 
j/k, little bombcast joke

Everybody who speaks a language of any kind anywhere in the world has an accent. It drives me crazy when I hear fellow Canadians or americans say they have "no accent".

After listening through all the E3 coverage, I came away more impressed with his dedication to the "when the rubber meets the road" saying.

#31 Posted by ch3burashka (5017 posts) -

Executable.

#32 Posted by Fredchuckdave (5339 posts) -

Muskegon, though he was right like 1 out of 5 tries or something (not the person who wrote in, I just live in Michigan; which pronounced by Ryan Davis might be Meesheegan).

That's actually how Isaac Asimov pronounced robot. It's just a Yiddish accent applied to the word (Asimov grew up speaking English and Yiddish).

Wyvern

#36 Posted by Mystyr_E (1189 posts) -

I have a feeling the "suword" is from Dragon Age: Origins

#37 Posted by billyhoush (1192 posts) -

Ryan is secretly Canadian.

I believe he also grew up in California, like Jeff.

I like to think Ryan would yell at me for it, but I believe Will's pronunciation of "executable" was correct.

#43 Posted by Mushir (2389 posts) -

I liked how Ryan pronounced "interesting". He didn't say "intresting". He valued the letter "e".
