RE: [IP] Wilfred Brimley's TV commercial pronunciation



The closest I can come to the original (Greek) pronunciation is

	dee uh bay tes

 As for the "correct" one, all I can say is that diabeteeees sounds horrid to
me.

Cheers,
Felix.

 The word diabetes originates from Latin and Greek thereby giving several
 choices for correct pronunciation depending on which language dialect you
prefer
--- di a beet es, di a beet is (Brimley's choice), di a beet eez.
