Kind of a mix between the two I think...more like On-clave though...

I call it the car with the interior that looks like it's solved the hard-plastic issue. Oh, and like ocn wrote, Ahn-clave

on-clayv

The French would say

on-clauv

But, thank God, we're not French. :AH-HA_wink: to our Quebecois friends on the board.

Merriam has several different pronunciation variations:

en-claive (en as in pen, ai- as in day[i is modified to y at the end of words for clarity])

aun-claive or aunclauve (au- as in bother)

auŋ-clauve (ŋ=ing/eng, in sing, saŋk)

I go for aunclaive. The -clave is from clavus=key, and refers to a gated community, specifically of foreign origin.
