Did you make this because you heard somebody say "eye-talian"? because I've never ever heard that before.

I heard someone say 'eye-talian' recently on Boardwalk Empire.

Eye-talian..really?

I was talking about this with an Italian friend -we agree that the 'eye' version is weird but have heard it from some Americans. (New York Italians? not sure)

As a NY italian, i have heard eye-talian here and there but rarely.
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/17/11 - 5:32:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well, Italians aren't from "Eye-taly"; They're from "Ih-taly", so that.

Clever.

Still, "eye-talian" sounds weird.

The only person I've heard say eye-talian is Apollo Creed
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/17/11 - 1:17:26 PM EST (GMT-5)

On a related note, is it "eye-talics" or "ih-talics"?
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 3/23/11 - 4:53:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
only 'ih-talics' according to Macmillan dictionary (both US and British section)
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 3/23/11 - 4:54:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
same for 'ih-talian' actually!
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 3/23/11 - 12:11:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
It sounds more like uh-talian whenever I say it.

Ih-talian. My boyfriend and his family say eye-talian. I guess it's a Southern thing.
