I was just wondering what the correct pronunciation of this is. Is it pronounced: car-bean or car-byne????? {Edited because I can't spell "proninciation")

KAR-bean. go to http://www.m-w.com/ and search for carbine in the dictionary, then click on the speaker icon to hear the word spoken.

Thanks. I always thought it was car-byne. Everytime I said it, I got the, "WTF is that," look.

The American Heritage Dictionary lists both as being correct. Car'byne is listed first, which means that it is prefered.

Except in the movie "Rio Bravo" when Ricky Nelson asks the Duke, "Do you always keep that *carbon* cocked"?

I wouldn't pronounce "carbine" the same that someone from the northeast would. Since you're from CA, you can understand that all northeasterners have an unintelligible accent that drives the rest of us (mainly southerners) crazy. The correct pronunciation would depend upon your region, as Websters says that both are correct. In the south, southwest, and midwest, pronounce the word "CAR-BEAN." Up north, pronounce the word "CAR-BYNE." It would be great if someone would publish a pronunciation manual for the U.S., with all of the accents and local jargon. It would be most handy for vacations, and would help you blend in with the locals.

I call bullshit- listen to fat old Kennedy and tell me that he speaks proper English. It's not the NE, it's Conneticut. The most proper form of North American English is spoken in Conneticut- those folks have almost no accent, and pronounce everything so that you can understand them. How boring!

Someone is working on it. It is the Dictionary of American Regional English[url]http://polyglot.lss.wisc.edu/dare/dare.html[/url].It's a massive undertaking which they've been working for several decades and aren't even up to the letter "S" yet.

Car-Bean as in Green "Bean" Car-Byne as in "Com-Bine" OR Car-Bine as in silent "e", Carbin? Personally, I prefer to drink Jim Beam, NOT Jim-Byne and and would like to see a hole in the head of Osama Bin, NOT Osama Bean. Umm... what was the question again? M.

Isn't it from the german word Karabiner (or something like that). I say Car-Byne.

Yes, pr. car-"Bean" it comes from the word for short barreled rifle = Cara-bean. French I think. In German, it's also Karabiner. "Cara-beaner".
