Pronunciation

Don''t they pronounce it sky-rim in all the trailers and when Todd Howard announced it at the video game awards?

I thought it was /skairim/ in Oblivion. You're saying it's /skairIm/ ?

Actually, the trailers are referring to the region of "Sky-Rim." Just because this game happens to share the same letters does not mean that it is pronounced the same. Oblivion was obviously not named after the region it took place in. In fact the y and m are silent for the actual pronunciation.

If you don't believe me, then read the word read out loud and think about how you read it the second time.

Oh sweet! Yet another pronunciation thread on a Gamespot/GameFAQs forum!

You guys carry on while I finish off making a topic about how this game is just 'Fallout 3 with swords' - brb!

Anyone saying anything other than "sky-rim" is not only wrong but incredibly stupid as well.
