How do you pronounce "pecan"?

mudpie mudpie
I had an argument with a friend about this today. I have always pronounced it "PE-can" rather than "pe-CAHN", but he argued that a "pee can" is something you take on long truck drives. Ew! How do you all pronounce it?

No pee can here, but usually I'll say it like "pi-cahn".

Pi-chan. Pee-can was common in the south where I grew up though.

I say Pi-cahn. It really depends on where you're from.

Pi-cahn, usually. Though I'm sure I've said both depending on context.

My mom (raised in Wisconsin) pronounces it PE-can so I did too. However, since moving to TX several years ago I now pronounce it pi-cahn.

I love Pecan Pie. When I'm excited I say: PE-con Pie. But I know it's more likely pe-CHAN! Does the part of the country where you live have anything to do with the pronunciation?

Now that I think about it, I say pe-CAHN usually but sometimes call the pie PE-can. Must have learned the usage in differing contexts. I also pronounce Caribbean differently when referring to the Sea and the Disneyland ride.

I can't pick one or the other, because I don't always pronounce it the same way. Sometimes I say "pee-can", other times, I say "pi-khan". I do the same with caramel. Sometimes it's "care-a-mel", other times it's "car-mel".

I say PE-can, and so does everyone I know. I've never actually heard anyone say pe-CAHN in person, just on TV.
