Recently, I asked Keith Baker about something that none of the Eberron books have ever answered; specifically, "How do you pronounce Cyre?"
He told me that native Cyrans pronounce it "Ky-ree" (two syllables), but other nations generally get it wrong -- and that you can sometimes tell where someone's from by how they mispronounce it. (Some make it rhyme with "beer" or "tire", for instance.)
It's sort of like New Orleans. Natives have their own way of saying it, and pretty much everyone else mangles it, but each region has their own way of messing it up.
Edit: I went ahead and put this information on the main page.
