I say it with a short 'a' and emphasize the first syllable. So I say it rather like KRAtum or KRATum. It never occured to me for it to be said any differently. Strange, that.

5) Krat-om, or this - 6) Krat-um
Come to think of it, although I aint read any of this thread (yet) kraytom could make sense as a pronunication, I just never heard anyone actually utter the word, so arrived at my krat, cat, shat on the mattum.

I always thought to pronounce it krat-um, but on you-tube a guy on there was pronouncing it kray-tum, so i thought I was pronouncing it wrong all the time. I guess its like the, "you say (toe-may-to) and I say (toe-matto)" scenario.

Same as Mona really.........Kra-tum. I never thought of any other way......or even that another way was possible. LOL
I mean kraY-tum? I'd never consider adding another letter to a word! Differing pronunciation is amazing really.
