How do you pronounce 'Scirra'?

I have been saying "seer-ah"

I have heard some say "Skir-ah"

(and yes, I have talked to many about construct. It's true! :D )

I would like an "official" pronunciation, but I want to here how others have been saying it also.

[quote="vinny":1w8ah2jt][quote="SoldjahBoy":1w8ah2jt]Because of the prefix "sci" I always pronounced it "sigh - rah", though through proper English grammar I believe that any vowel followed by a double letter changes it's pronunciation... in which case it should be "sih - rah"??[/quote:1w8ah2jt]

i think SoldjahBoy's got the right idea here

think science and scimitar, one has a vowel following "sci" but the other has a consonant following "sci" and it changes its pronunciation significantly from "sigh" to "sih", respectively. i, myself, pronounce the "sci" in scirra the same way i would pronounce the "sci" in scimitar, "sih".[/quote:1w8ah2jt]
