Re: how do you say skein?

I have always said skeen, but know it's skane...but I've also heard skine (which actually makes sense when I compare the ei to my old last name)

Re: how do you say skein?

I say "skane", since "ein" doesn't equal "een" phonetically. And I've never actually heard anyone say "skeen"!
