    Always pronounced it as "neesh". I think "nitch" is an American thing.

    Some people pronounce it nitch, I prefer 'neesh.'

    I also first thought it was fiv-er but five-er sounds way cooler.

    And I pronounce "douche" like this: "doo-shay", because "doosh" is too masculine.

    However "Stupid fucking thread" is still pronounced in the standard manner.

    BHW thought for the day: how are people supposed to find niches when nobody knows how to pronounce it?

    Neesh sounds good, although fivver is a bit odd.

    Some people pronounce niche like 'nitch' right?

    Gotta be neesh - I cringe when I hear Americans pronouncing it wrong.

    Taken our language and screwed it up :)

    If you're pronouncing 'niche' as 'nitch'- you're butchering the English language. Please, stop -__-

    I always used to think of it as "neesh", this is the first time I came across it as "nitch".

    Nitch, snitch, bitch. I got a nitch, I mean an inch, no I meant itch, can you scratch it?

    Being a Yank I always pronounce niche like nitch. Niche like neeshe sounds strange but considering there is a vowel following the first vowel that should make the first vowel long so I guess the letter i should be pronounced like a long e if my hooked on phonics is still correct. Just hearing it all my life as nitch and never hearing the word neeshe until video became popular in IM set me in my ways.
