  • ... This is how the ancient Greeks pronounced it. They created the word.

  • As my mythology professor taught me: if you pronounce every syllable in ancient Greek as if it were stressed and had a long vowel, you won't stray too far from the way that word was once pronounced.

  • I have said it this way for a long time. I still think it is said this way.

Nike's business practices are too shifty for me to buy anything from them, honestly.

Admittedly, "Naik" would be funnier and perhaps lighten the situation up a bit...
