Hi guys,

This is a simple question, that for some reason, I was unable to find an answer for in the internet.

What is the correct pronunciation of Kubernetes in English?

I think it would be nice to add it in your README.md file too.

Thank you!

Let's ask all involved people give their own voices. Literally ;)

Non-english speakers are welcome too.

For whoever wants to show off linguistically:
The (simplified) phonetic pronunciation of the original Greek word (Κυβερνήτης) is kee-ver-NEE-tees

@chaidas unfortunately I think nobody would have a clue what I was on about if I said that!

Interesting trivia though. :)

Correct pronounciation for Kubernetes/κυβερνήτης:

I assume @chaidas is native Greek speaker, so would you say that's correct?

Jess is close. I think most people pronounce it koob-er-net-eez. Anyway, this is not the right repo. This belongs in kubernetes.github.io.
