    I've heard both pronunciations on UK news broadcasts.

    Amigos notwithstanding, it would surprise me to hear an American say "bee-on-tek".

    It's not worth disagreeing about. Let bygones be bygones and BioNs be BioNs.

    And as we now know from both Amigos' and Glizdka's links, the CEO doesn't care how you pronounce it, and happily accepts both!

    The "bee" pronunciation is natural for a German-speaker. It wouldn't come naturally to most Americans.

    Re: Pfizer-BioNTech Vaccine

    Wandering off-topic slightly, I was disappointed to learn a few years ago that Tdol was not, as I had fondly imagined, pronounced /tɪdl/ (tiddle); it's /tiːdɒl/ (tea-doll).

    My name is pronounced /paɪsiːən/ (Pie-see-un), not, as I was once addressed, /pɪskiːn/ (piss-keen).
