I've been saying Ma-kin-ar-ee-um, but I don't speak Czech.
I think there is a video interview somewhere where JD or Floez(x? I can't remember and the website is so far away...) say it.
I haven't seen that either.

Edit: Bah, it was x...

You can listen to an interview with Tomas (Floex) Dvorak and hear the Czech pronunciation of "Machinarium" at 4:38 and again at 4:58 into it.  (probably sooner if you pay attetnion) Grin   It's very much like what Cirdain thought it was (but smoother without any accented syllables)

@divit that TV interview with our boys was mentioned here.     Grin

The pronunciation is very close to the latin word Machina.

the 'ch' is pronounced as in loch or Ernst Mach.
I'm not sure if english has any widespread word that uses that sound.

I don't think it is an English word anyway. Or Czech.
Then I guess you can pronounce it the way you like it

Lol, that moment when you realize that you've been pronouncing a word wrong for years and never knew.
