What about "machine" or "pristine"?

I pronounce it like car-by-n. I don't care how other people pronounce it though.

"car" as in automobile
"bine" as in binery. Long "I"
Link Posted: 9/25/2004 6:59:48 PM EST
It's car-bine, with the 'i' having a long vowel sound.
Link Posted: 9/25/2004 7:08:59 PM EST
It's in the dictionary with both pronunciations ... why would anybody be bothered by either?

Christ, talk about splitting hairs.

Carbeen. I don't care how anybody else pronounces it. It does bother me when people call a magazine a clip. I don't know why, but it does.

Because a magazine is not a clip, it's not a mispronounciation, it's just plain wrong.

As far as Carbine, I use both pronounciations. I don't know why except that I've never really heard anyone say it. I usually only hear it in my head and along the way I've found myself using both interchangeable.

Everything he said, including the last part --- I just didn't dyslexically realize it until it was posted here...!

BTW, wasn't there a MOVIE called Carbine Williams, with Jimmy Stewart?
Didn't he pronounce it 'CAR-BYNE' in the movie?

I don't remember how he pronounced it in the movie, but Hollywood isn't exactly known for getting things right. The guy's name was Marsh Williams. "Carbine" was a nickname he got because in developed the M-1 Carbine. The word "carbine" considerably predates him and his rifle.


Main Entry: car·bine
Pronunciation: 'kär-"bEn, -"bIn

Etymology: French carabine, from Middle French carabin carabineer
1 : a short-barreled lightweight firearm orig. used by cavalry

Car-bine when I with my red neck beer drinking buddies.

Car-bean when I with the elite aristocratic socialites.

Well, seeing how as the name comes from the French Carabineer, which is pronounced car-ah-bin-eer, Carbine should be pronounced car-bine.

Thoug­h

QuantumP­ion is right. The origin of the word is French. The proper (English) pronunciation should be based on its French origin. but we're AMERICANS, dammit, and we pronounce it OUR WAY - Car-BEAN.

Here's Merriam-Webster's take on it, with sound effects
