    Default KawaI or KawAi

    This wrod hasn't any accent in Japanese, but anyway, how do you pronounce in English - KawaI or KawAi?
    I'm pronouncing KawAi.

    Well, you are pronouncing the word in Japanese no matter what but anyway...

    "Kawaii" is pronounced "ka-wa-ii". The "ii" means it is a long vowel sound.

    Note: The kanji for "kawaii" is 可愛い (pronounced "ka-wai-i). The hirigana and katakana can not reflect the same pronounciation as the kanji so the sounds are separated. Both versions sound the same.

    I know about Japanes version, but what about English? I don't think it's posssible to avoid the accent in an when you're speaking English.

    I don't mean to seem like I'm hating.. But this thread slightly smells of |Insert that anime related term|.

    But in any case I think WolfGirl has this one covered, she seems well informed.

    Perhaps the world was never meant to make perfect sense.

    I agree, lols.

    I don't use the word. But if I see it, I pronounce it Ka-wai-i.

    "Kawaii" is pronounced "I'm a beawoo, please put me out of my misery!"
