...but given that we're apparently getting one, I'm quite excited that Romola Garai is going to be Emma, and very excited indeed that Jonny Lee Miller is going to be Mr Knightley.

Everyone in the UK except [livejournal.com profile] frankie_ecap pronounces it 'neeshe'. Those in the Commonwealth also tend to use this pronunciation.

US respondents were much more divided, with a preference for 'nitch' but with quite a lot of discussion in comments about using both pronunciations or not really being sure how to pronounce the word.

So, I will assume that the Radio 4 continuity announcer who prompted this poll was simply having a bad moment when he came out with 'nish'.
