I've pronounced it both ways. Meh.

edit: I prefer "CaRIBbean" but it doesn't sound right when discussing the "Pirates of the CariBEAn" movies and their attendant Keira Knightley hotness.

I've used both. Don't know why though.

I'm pretty sure the second one should be "kuh-RIB-ee-an." I've never heard it pronounced "KUH-rib-EE-an"

Probably because I'm English and it's how everybody I was around pronounced it, but I say it CA (as in the start of the word Cat) RIB-BE-AN

The bigger question is how you would pronounce CARIBBEAN CARBINE?

You misspelled it, and it's pronounced Car-Bean.

I pronounce it just like the man Billy Ocean did in his great song CARE-uh-BE-an Queen.


Edit,
DAMN YOU for beating me with a Billy Ocean reference.
