tin-eye-tis with a right nice, long slow 'eye'.
It reminds me of landing in London and not being able to understand the cabbie at first and he was a full blooded Brit.
Only "ah", so it would be tin-ah-tus, y'all.
Your British cabbie story reminded me that I was talking to someone the other day about watching the film Nowhere Boy, which depicts John Lennon's youth. The Scouse accents are so heavy I have trouble understanding parts of it, and said my DVD should have come with subtitles.
"Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be. 'Cause now I'm an amputee" J. Lennon
And I have a friend from Madrid who visited me in Puerto Rico and was constantly challenged by locals who wanted to know where he learned "his Spanish."
