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.

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"?
