I have a question about the language Slovene. Which of these two pronunciations is more common? [sloʊˈvin, ˈsloʊ vin]

    I'll bet that most people on this forum have never heard the world spoken out loud in their lives, and that 99%+ haven't heard it ten times. If you want to do a survey, you'd probably be better off asking on a Slavic- or Balkan-affairs forum.

    I've heard it on the news, and it's generally /sləʊˈviːn/ or slow-VEEN, or even /sləˈviːn/ or sluh-VEEN.
