    I will ante up on the Ant-ee bandwagon. What a terrible play on words I used. Excuse me while I boo myself.

    I think it depends entirely on the word that it's attached to. I mean, you'd say an-tie-LGBT, but not an-tie-biotics, right?

    I would use "ant-ee" in both cases, usually.

    I use both. Kinda like Aunt. I say "Ant Pam" or "Aunt Cathy"

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Just to stoke this bad boy up, how about the word Semi?

    Sem-ee or Sem-eye?
