Just a silly little question that I was hoping you all would know the answer to .. Do you pronounce Coven like Cuven or co-ven (make that o sound)?? Any help would be apprieciated.

Most people I know pronounce it with the soft U sound.

I pronounce it cuv-en (cuv like cub with a v).

Yeah it is. I loved it.

oh wow, when will this question end? Of course, now that people aren't stuck on how to pronounce athame, they're onto coven. What's next "gardnerian", "ritual", "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"?
