"OCK-UH-REE-NUH is the correct one.
Remember, this is not a made up word or term. Ocarinas are real instruments. If you want to hear it for yourself, then listen to the audio pronunciation on a dictionary website that has that feature."-Axle the Best
That is true.
However, Nintendo repeatedly pronounces it Oh-carina during press conferences.
Remember that Zelda is fictional and a word could pronounced differently in a fictional world.
I've always pronounced it Oh-carina.

I AM a grammar nazi and this Nazi Halo will never fall! I pronounce it Ok-ah-reen-a. But I've heard it pronounced Oh-kah-ree-na as well. It used to aggravate me when I heard it said like that. Now, I just don't care. I also pronounce Hylian as Hill-ian. XPWhy does it matter unless if you're a grammar nazi?
If your talking about the insterment is AH-carina. But the game is OH-carina
