How do you say it? Do you have strong feelings on the matter? Can I turn this into an argument somehow?

Am I in fact wildly immature?

I say "ma-chur". Personally, I blame my Scottish accent, or maybe this is just the correct way to pronounce mature. Saying it like "ma-toor" just makes me sounds like I've got a stick up m'posh arse.

Saying stuff like "mature chedder" probably doesn't help. Two 'ch' sounds just roll off the tongue better when paired together.

Ma-chur, isn't that the correct way to say it? It's like saying poh-tah-toh.

So... EVERYBODY* says? -chur? 'cause I've heard the t pronounced from audiobook narrators and other people on occasion and gone, "What the hell,"

*Metaphorically speaking, of course.

Actually I put emphasis on the t.

Ma-chur wouldn't really cut it since you leave the t out.

More liek mat-chur. But what do I know, I'm a crazy Swede.

Same as Tsuyu. Mat-choor.

And yes Walker, I'll argue with you if you want.

Arse, you sonovabitch. Match-ur? Is that what what you mean? When I spell it that way I put too much emphasis on the a. YOU PUT TOO MUCH EMPHASIS ON THE A, DAMN YOU. But, yeah, I'm not really sure that's any different...

And Lacky, where you from? Are you an old person who got renamed when I wasn't looking?
