    Smile pronunciation

    How do you pronounce the word "Boeing"? I looked it up in American Heritage Dictionary but didn't find it.
    Thanks

    Actually where it's located, it's pronounced [ boin ] (bo-een).

    As in a Boeing 747? I've always pronounced it and heard it pronounced "boe-ing."
