I think I've heard the nerds say cash+eek tho
Same for me. That's how I heard it pronounced for the first time in Knights of the Old Republic, where I got used to hearing it, so that's how it'll always be for me. I cringed when I heard Mace say "ka-sheek" in Revenge of the Sith. Well, it's probably just a case of pronunciations changing over four thousand years.

Anyway, one of the boys argued it was AT-AT as in the word at and in his argument he said, Thats how dad says it!
The other boy replied with, WHO CARES?! Dad says a lot of things!

Caribbean as in Ca-re-bee-un or Cuh-rebian.
Nevada as in Nev-adda or Nev-ah-dah.
New Orleans as in New Or-leens or New Or-lunz.
So you figure not everyone around a whole galaxy would pronounce the same words the same way. Hearing characters pronounce words differently made the SW world more believable.

My family takes the piss out of me because I pronounce it Yew-Toob instead of the more British sounding Yew-Tyoob. My partner has also noticed that I've started saying dates with the month first instead of the number first (November 22nd instead of 22nd November.
We're debating this because ATST is said how?
