Default How do you pronounce 'mana'?


I see some sound set threads pop up here and there for heroes and notice they pronounce mana 'mawn-na'.

All my life with any mmo I've always pronounced it 'man-na' so it kinda weirds me out when they say it that way. How do you guys pronounce mana, I can't be the only one who pronounces it that way.

somewhat like "meh-na" but H is not strong; but in my own language or while talking to the hood people, it's "mana"

So for the people who pronounce it 'ma-na', do you pronounce the 'ma' part like "hey ma, I'm home!"?

Man-a. The A is pronounced like a little 'A' rather than a big one

Blizzard got me used to "men-ah", so I guess that's the "canon" way of saying it. But in my own country, we pronounce it like in Dota 2. My guess is the Americans use "men-ah" and the British and Europeans use "ma-nah".
