AT Survey: How Do You Pronounce IKEA?

Maxwell Ryan
Dec 18, 2007

We always thought there was one way to say the vaunted word: IKEA, but recently we've been hearing a few different versions. Our first reaction was to laugh privately and write these people off as just not-as-smart-as-us. But then we realized that WE MIGHT BE WRONG, and we kept it to ourselves. Then we went trolling the web and found LOTS of answers (see below the jump), which really made us humble. We think you may also be surprised with the answers.

But what do you think? Is there a right way? Is it different in different parts of the country? How do you say it?
