I always thought it pronounced like waabt.

-- Rebecca the.. Azteca? (, October 15, 1999.

Actually, I'd been wondering about that one for a while. For me, it ends up as "wobb't", which bears a strange resemblance to 'Robert' is said with a speech problem.

want= waunt, when I i say it. ("aunt" being pronounced like they pronounce it in new england. *shrug*) wabt is the same way, but with a "bt" instead of an "nt", although sometimes it sounds like a "pt" *shrug*

(No divorces, yau! Don't You Forget About Us!)
