How do you say the word "Shaman"

General Discussion
Do you pronounce it "shay-man" or "shahhh-man"?

Just wondering. Ragnaros pronounces it the former in the Firelands trailer, and I've always pronounced it the latter... even the rare occasions I've used the word outside WoW terms.

Bugs the eff out of me..
I don't pronounce words consistently for some reason. Sometimes I say the former, but usually the latter.
I use "shah-man."

Its pronounced sh-a-man

EDIT: That is if your going for the actual correct way to pronounce it.
Sho-man Sho-men. potato pototo.
I've always been confused about this.
Usually watch the mighty boosh tv series, and on there they always pronounce it shay-men, though they're british so I really have no clue.
The NPCs in Vashj'ir pronounce it "shah-man".

IRL I pronounce it the same way.
Well at least I'm not the only one. I was told by some Aussie's on my server they say it "Shay-men" but I am pretty sure Ragnaros is not from Australia...

All I know is, I've yet to hear anyone on the history channel say "Shay-men" and for some reason (nerd related surely) it bugged the heck out of me when I watched the Firelands trailer and Ragnaros called Thrall a "little shaymen".

I even rewinded it, listened to it again, and cried out "Thralls balls! Ragnaros is a tard!"
I like to say Shah-mon

my raid leader says shah-men (even though he means it singular)
