Tin- AYE- tus like a pirate lol
Aye cuz the other way just sounds weird.
Tinn it us......
Tinn...exploding head syndrome.
I chose tinn-ih-tus, because the '-aytus'-sounding suffix is usually reserved for inflammatory conditions.
Every time my doctors pronounce it 'tin-ih-tus' i swear suddenly they sound like they have a British accent...
I expected it to be pronounced 'tinnidus' in the US, but apparently that's not the case?
I've heard a few people pronounce it that way but none were doctors. lol maybe it's a doctor thing to enunciate conditions??
I think number two, tinn-ih-tus, is the correct one, and the one you hear most doctors use. But most average folks use the first and don't know what the hell I am saying when I use second pronunciation.
It also cracks me up how many people think I am telling them I have "tendonitis."
TIN-i-tuss, but I used to say tin-AYE-tuss. Been hearing too many Brits pronounce it and got converted.
What ever it is it's a horrible word to all of us.
Me too!!! @Cheza ... Jajaja!!!!
I pronounce it tin-aye-tus. Maybe thats why my doctors are giving that "deer in the headlight" look when I say that word to them.
Sterling Archer says tin-AY-tus, and if it's good enough for Archer it's good enough for me.
Pronounce it like William Shatner!
