How to pronounce "therian"
What is the proper pronunciation of therian? I was wondering because I've heard it as both theh-ree-uhn and te-ree-uhn.

It is Th-air-ee-en. I have heard the "te-ree-uhn" pronunciation because of accents, or regional pronunciation differences. Both are likely acceptable, but the former is correct.

It depends on where you're from!

I've heard it "th-air-ee-an" like there-ee-an. But I've also heard it "th-eerie-an" like theory-an". I say it with "eerie" in the middle.

I just pronounce it how it comes naturally in Slovenian and interestingly this is how it comes out.

The same trick also works for pronouncing GIF (the image format).

RE: How to pronounce "therian"
I pronounce it as teh-ree-an, I blame PD and Thorn for that. I also personally find the other pronunciations weirdly mystical.

yeah the reason i asked was because i was watching one of PD's videos and someone elses (i forget who) and they both pronounced it like that
