Pronunciation

Going to pick up the new Teryx Tuesday morning. The wife is all excited, she finally has her own toy.

Anyway, I've been wondering. What is the actual pronunciation of the Teryx?

Is it tear-ix? tee-rex? What?

I watched a video of a Kawasaki employee whom was interviewed and I thought he was calling it tear-ix while the interviewer was calling it tee-rex. It happened throughout the interview and I guess it doesn't matter otherwise the interviewer might have been corrected.

Tee-rex sounds much more "manly", "intimidating", etc than does tear-ix

So what do you guys think?

I sure would hate to be calling it the wrong way when I actually own one.

It is more like Ter-ex according to what I read. I call it T-Rex most of the time.

The "proper" pronunciation is Tare-ix but I hear lots of people calling them Tee-rex too. That I guess sounds more "manly" but it also sounds like "ancient dinosaur" too...
