Americans generally say "Pac is tan"

Pakistanis say "pock ee stawn".


I've been known to use both.

The white guilt way is pock-ee-stawn, but I say is pak-is-tan. The also call Iraq eeu-rock while I say it like eye-rack.
I'm tellin' ya, white guilt has it's own accent.

I have been saying it Pack-is-tan, but lately I have been watching news reports out of Pakistan about fighting and I hear a lot of Pock as opposed to Pack.

Depending on the group I'm with (Americans or Arabs) I'll say it the Americanized way or the correct way.

Packy stan, Pack-iss-stan or pock-ee-stawn. I use all three, I am not even aware when I say it one way or another. I think the correct was is pock-ee-stawn.
Link Posted: 5/2/2009 1:02:45 PM EDT
If you're from Southeast Asia, it's more like "Pauk-is-tan".  If you're a normal American, it's "Pack-i-stan".  If you're a news reporter who wants to sound cool, it's "pock-is-tawn".

Pakistan is actually an English word. It comes from the acronym Pashtun, Afghan, Kashmere, and Indian. Since it is an English acronym, it is only correct to pronounce it pak-i-stan.
Link Posted: 5/2/2009 4:37:41 PM EDT
When I hear certain American radio talkshow hosts pronounce it pock ee stawn I tuen the fucking rdio station.
This is America we call it Pakistan. You are not smarter than us when you pronounce it  pock ee stawn

Great vowel shift of the 1500, best guess that is was brought about by the Black Death.





And why are you calling it guilt?

Obama says it pretty close to how it is pronounced in Urdu or in surrounding languages.

It literally means pure or clean land (pak kardan in Farsi means to clean, erase, etc and stan of course means place or land of).

In general I say it in my unmarked American accent with the stress on the first syllable, with the vowels [æ, ɪ, æ] respectively.
