Yoo-ventoos is the correct Latin and Italian pronunciation, anything else is simply anglified, gallified or spanified.

Dont think there is a right and wrong way to pronounce it, it depends what language you are speaking.

If you live in Italy you pronounce the u like o but in Sweden where I live I pronounce it as it is written.

The American announcers pronounce it "gioo-ventoos", and it drives me mad

they also have a habit of mispronouncing players names, too
i think the only european they're pronouncing correctly in sports, at least of what i know of, is not very surprisingly miroslav satan. :D

thomas vanek is doing great, right? :)
