    I haven`t got a clue what you`re referring to.

    Care to give us a clue? ;)

    What is Hii? Is it some word from another language or something?

    Regards Howard :)

    The Wii - pronounced as the pronoun "we"

    Therefore,the Hii must be pronounced "he"

    Thats not an English word as far as I know. Perhaps it is a location, I'm not going to google it though because I don't care enough. Maybe LeapingThongs should have googled it?

    Well where did you hear it, or did you just make it up?

    If you heard it, in what context?

    Regards Howard :)

    Well, why didn`t you say that in your original post? It would`ve saved a lot of confusion.

    No wonder I could find any info on Google.

    Do you often make up nonsense words?

    In any case, as you made it up, you should know how it`s pronounced. :p

    Regards Howard :)

    If I must give an answer, I`d say hee, for the same reason as Po`Girl. ;)

    Normally in English, if you have 2 of the same vowel in a row, it is pronounced the same way that vowel would on its own. So I'd say it is pronounced like Hi.

    In any case, I think the question, and the way it was asked and followed up sounded like something I'd expect from a kid no older than 7. Good Job sounding like a little child.
