Pronunciation of "Carbine"


Just out of curiosity how do you you all pronounce the word ‘carbine’?

  • Car b’eye’n (what do beans have to do with anything?)
  • Car bean (how could the British know more about guns than Americans?)
  • Assault Rifle (it needs to be banned before it can run away and shoot school children)

Now remember different people pronounce it differently, and that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to be cussing people out. (but we all know the one objectively true pronunciation :wink:)


What does this have to do with unturned


pretty much nothing.


I say “Car been”


i’d say the “e” at the end changes it from “car-bin” to “car-b’eye’n”


whoever says car been is a big dummy doo-doo head


English spelling has more to do with etymology than it has to do with English pronunciation.


Yes, doodoo heads indeed.




Guys, c’mon… It’s pronounced “Carbine.”



However, this is a car-bean


Where on earth did you find it
I’m 100% sure it deals more damage than bullets.


Look up “Places where beans shouldn’t be.”


Car-bine is how I pronounce it. Just like it’s spelled. Pretty sure that’s the standard American way to pronounce it.


watch the foul language mister!!!


The question isn’t whether carbine should be pronounced ‘car-bine’ or not, the question is how is ‘-bine’ is pronounced. Is it pronounced like sardine, limousine, machine, etc. or like decline, shine, confine, etc. or like masculine, discipline, doctrine, etc.




Ah, well in that case I mean pronounced like decline, shine, and such.


you turned into runforthecube at the end of that sentence


I say car bin
