My 14 yo, when she was like 11 yo or so, told her little bros that Chewie was from the planet Kesha. I asked if that was spelled with a dollar sign or not, she just looked at me like I was stupid... she still does actually.

By nerds do you mean people who have watched the movies?

Yeah. It was homeroom and we were talking about it. I tried to find it online but some sites are blocked by the school software.

Apparently the "correct" way is at at (like the word at), but I've always said ayy tee ayy tee and you can't stop me now.

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.

My youngest two boys have argued over how to say AT-AT while they play, believe it or not (Facebook friends might remember me mentioning it years ago).

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!

Well, we pronounce the same words differently just in our own little world.

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.

I think the earliest attempt (I want to believe Bantha Tracks) was "cashy-yik," because how the "y" can be used the third "y" becomes a vowel. That's how I pronounced it until the films.

It's "cash-ick" in KOTOR. That's how I will always pronounce it despite the films.

So with all of the evidence provided it’s clear that normal people say “eek” and nerds say “ick”

I mean, tomato-tomotto. Plus, you're talking about the passage of four thousand years.
