This week's poll was suggested by saraneon and Afiaki. This is not sponsored, although IKEA actually is on my mind since I'm moving soon...

You can submit poll ideas here
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you donate anything?
Choices:
I donate nothing - votes: 754 (31.9%)
I volunteer mostly - votes: 138 (5.8%)
I donate old belongings sometimes - votes: 575 (24.3%)
I donate small amounts of money sometimes - votes: 652 (27.6%)
I regularly give a set amount - votes: 216 (9.1%)
I contribute most of my available resources to charity - votes: 27 (1.1%)
There were 2362 total votes.
The poll ended: October 22nd, 2022 11:33am PDT

Hopefully all of us will eventually be in a financial position where we are fortunate enough to give to others

The only correct pronuncation isn‘t even an option, lol. In the english pronuncation of letters, it‘s E-KA-YA.
That‘s how it is pronounced in Sweden and also in Germany. Which means the user residentgrigo is wrong, the middle is certainly not pronounced „kay“.

Everyone who pronounces the „I“ like „eye“ should be whipped, tbh.

5/7 troll Lemon Ice. Ruined it with a double-post.

I was amazed at first that we are actually polling this, but it's actually quite interesting to see.
Almost all monolingual English speakers will choose an "Ai" (as in "eye" ) pronunciation, but likely everyone else will choose an "Ee" (as in "eh", "e" ) pronunciation.

There are a hundred different colloquial variations with each language; some segments are changed or accented to be easier to pronounce, but only really in English is the "I" accented.

English examples:

That's how the people here pronounced it and based on the videos above that's the closest pronunciation to how Swedish people say it mmm...

ee-kay-ah would be the closest option.

ee for I as pronounced in most languages but English;
kay for KE as in Kevin;
ah for A as pronounced in most languages but English again.

Some other pronunciation
…as none of the options include the actual, proper (Swedish), pronunciation.
The Japanese get it pretty much right.

…though, of course, you typically pronounce acronyms, according to the language you're speaking, rather than the pronunciation in the original language, so the typical "Ai-kee-ah" is actually perfectly valid. (however weird/wrong it sounds)

Ee-ke-ah, maybe? (English "phonetic spelling", is a bit weird and inconsistent)

The I ([iː]) is pronounced like the 'ee' in 'free'. Or the "name" of the letter 'e'.
The K is… well it's a k.
The E e is pronounced as… as 'え', more or less. Failing that, I suppose the 'e' in let', is about as close as you'd get? (mrs_choco's suggestion of 'ke' as in 'kevin', is okay I suppose)
The A ([ä] which is a very annoying transcription, given the letter is most often used for a completely different sound) as… as あ, essentially. The "ah"-sound, using "English phonetic spelling", is close enough, I suppose.
