What is the correct pronunciation of the PS2 game "Kinetica"?

#1 Posted by JohnnyAutoFire (353 posts) -

This is an argument that has been going on between my friend and I for almost a decade.  I have always pronounced it as "Ken-Tech-Ah" but now I'm not sure if that is right, as there is an "e" in there that i didn't take into account back in 2001.  Is the "e" silent?

Kin-é-tich-ah.

Kinetic - ah. You took high school science classes, yes?

@CornontheCobbe: Yeah, now that i'm looking at it, that seems right.  I was a dumb 11 year old apparently.

@LaszloKovacs: At the time the game came out, no I hadn't yet had any high school classes.  Just for some reason I kept calling it that all this time.

I always had this problem as a kid. For years when playing Tekken, which I started at like 7,  I would call Heihachi Mishima "Hechia" and didnt learn until a few years ago how to say it properly.

bahaha Yes!
 
I'm so glad that I, once again, have been pronouncing this the correct way.

This has to be right.
