Okay, I know this is a pretty stoopid question but help me out with an argument I am having with little miss can't be wrong...

How do people pronounce 'hayabusa'.

ie -

do you pronounce it "hayabooooooza"

or is it "hayabusa" - with no prolonged "oooo" vowel sound?

right, I'm off for a strong coffee/scotch.......

I pronounce it ha ya BU sa. Emphasis on BU.

I would be interested to know how it's pronounced in Japanese.

I can't ever say it without intentionally sounding like an angry Japanese guy....... short, choppy, and loud!


I also tell my Kwak and Yam riding buddies that it means "Faster than you"
