Ca RI be an.<br><br>
It seems like everyone else says it the other way. I looked it up and though and both are correct.<br><br>

cuh-rib-ee-un.<br><br><br><br>
I'd much rather go there than pronounce the name properly, of course.

I say "Ca RI be an" when refering to the Carribean like "Boy I'd like to go to the "Ca RI be an"<br><br><br><br>
But for whatever reason I say "Cari BE an" when refering to the movie and whatnot "Pirates of the Cari BE an"

lol he said "Kara-bean." Bean, as in green bean. There was no middle syllable. Kara bean queen. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I say ca-RIB-bee-in except for when I say "Pirates of the Care-a-bee-in."

I say caruh-BE-un. I've always hated the other way. My way sounds more lyrical and pleasant... just like the name of that part of the world should sound!

I can see it now... a VB version called "Carob Bean Queen"<br><br>
...except, according to Wikipedia, it's part of the legume family. But we won't let that stop us, now will we? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">
