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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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 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.

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