Re: Pronounciation: "stein" #general

The correct German pronunciation is 'shtine'.

Obviously, the American pronunciation is 's' rather than 'sh'.
'Stine' is definitely correct. I've also heard people say 'steen,'
but to my mind that's incorrect, or at least a mutation of the
correct/original pronunciation.

A gentile friend pointed out that some names ending in "stein" are
pronounced "stine" while others are pronounced "steen." What can
I tell him?
