I kind of wanted to say, "I pronounce it scirra." Because I think I'm all smart and pronouncing it the right way. I mean, like cirrus...

[quote="SoldjahBoy":3i8ioxi1]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:3i8ioxi1]

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".

Okay, I think we have it. "Scirra" with the "Sci" as in "Scimitar", and "rra" as in "rah". That's how I pronounce it too. So I was right - which is lucky, because I was the one to think it up :)
