Words Ryan pronounces weird...

#1 Posted by Fr0Br0 (3206 posts) -

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 (1760 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?

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

#7 Posted by Systech (4190 posts) -

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

#8 Posted by Valames (758 posts) -

Lol, he just does it for fun.

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

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"

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

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 (1924 posts) -

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

#24 Posted by Rhaknar (6299 posts) -

he pronounces Heihachi and Jun from tekken as HAIHAKI and YUN :P

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 (5520 posts) -

Executable.

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).

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

#37 Posted by billyhoush (1236 posts) -

Ryan is secretly Canadian.

#38 Edited by GaspoweR (4107 posts) -

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

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 (2631 posts) -

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