Am I the only one who likes pronouncing it as "Ee-lee-tra?" I seem to be a part of the minority, here...

Pronouncing ''elytra'' is so simple in my first language. My pronounce is e-lit-ra.

... and I say a mending "ee-lee-trah" is an elite "ee-lie-trah" because it sounds like "elite" *facepalm*

Lol. So the former is correct imo.

I don't know. I usually pronounce it eh-lee-tra, but I have heard it pronounced eh-lie-tra. I wonder if the developers ever said anything about it. They would be the most reliable source, I suppose.

I pronounce it something like "eh-lih-trah", because I'm pretty sure that's the standard pronunciation of the English word "elytra". :-P

Technically speaking, it's pronounced el-i-truh, which is the plural form of elytron (el-i-tron), which, in turn, is the hard forewings of certain beetles and other insects that act as a shell to protect the wings.
But since this is Minecraft -- and elytra don't act as wings in the real world -- I think it's supposed to be pronounced eh-lie-trah, but I could be wrong there. When in doubt, pronounce it the way the dictionary says to.

I alternate between eh lee tra and eh lie tra honestly because I'm not sure which is technically correct. I think it's probably one of those toe may toe or toe mah toe kind of things.

If i say the full word, I say ee-lie-trah, but most of the time I just say ely, pronounced as e-li.
