Septuagint?

From my research I have gathered:
British: SEP-tua-jint
American: sep-TUA-jint
Canadian: ?

I have always said it and heard it the British way.

I have always pronounced it the "American" way. That's how my professors in college pronounced it as well.

 I've heard it both ways.  I'm sitting here saying it over and over in my head (okay, out loud) trying to see how I say it. LOL

He, he.
Just to keep y'all on your toes!
Actually, I've been coming up with little songs for history this year. Next week i need a song for the Septuagint. You can see some of my songs on youtube if you search "wisemen400." So far I have recorded only three of them. But by June there should be 23 if we ever get around to doing more recording.

sep-TUA-gint for me.

Merriam-Webster.com is a great resource for pronounciation in my experience.
