We should go posh and put an exotic emphasis on an off syllable. eh could have an "~" on the e.

I've often heard it pronounced with at least some emphasis on the "w", so that's the version I prefer. Both seem to be acceptable in spoken English.

^^^Thanks, magic. A right[1] whale breaching; possibly just for the sheer fun of it.

I was way off on this one. All this time I thought it was boo-t-s.

The pronunciation for my name is G-Roll. I like complex and hard to pronounce names. Obviously.
