        I say pronounce it the way it is spelled. If not then change the spelling individually for each country to how they would pronounce it.

          We should deffo follow the rules of the English language. 7 and 8 lettered nouns that end in “ain” are typically pronounced “in”. E.g: Mountain, Fountain, Chaplain, Bargain, Plantain, Captain.

          Plan-tin carries more swagger too..

          Plan-tain feels like the correct response is “yes aunty” lolz

              Plantin is just grammatically correct. I don’t understand the issue.
