How do you say piezo?

It's time for Americans to start saying this properly.




I don't care how it looks on paper.
I don't care how the guy at the corner music shop says it.
I don't care how your favorite guitarist pronounces it.
Start saying it properly.

Don't read it phonetically.  It's a foreign word that has retained its native pronuciation, much like how there's a "t" sound in "pizza."  You just look ignorant when you go around saying "pie-zo."

The CORRECT way to say piezo is Pee - "a" - zoe.  That's a long "a" sound in the middle.
