My family and I were playing Scattagories last night and one of my moms answers was Emu. Some of us pronouced it E-Mewww and some said it was E-moo. Which one is it? Or are we all wrong?

  • According to Webster, both pronunciations are correct :) The audio example on the Merriam Webster website says "eemyoo"
