I hope this isn't a silly question: how do you pronounce angina? Do you say "ann GI (long I) na" or "ANN guh nuh" ???? Or some other way? Thanks.
we pronounce it an gi (long i) a here
I hear it pronounced both ways all the time! :)
Thanks. I live in the south and sometimes the southern accents have a way of twisting words around(!). Don't you know I teach a class on ANN- GI- NA/ s/sx of MI :) so wanted to make sure I was saying it right. (I've been pronouncing both ways to make everyone happy, lol)
Actually, with patients, I end up just saying good old fashioned CHEST PAIN. Works for me :)

Since we Australians don't have an accent I can say with authority that it is Ann-jeye-nah :roll
Depends on were you live. Both ways are correct, just like I say tamata you say tomato
Webster's dictionary lists both as correct.

Ever since I heard the following joke I say "ANN guh nuh."
