    How do "you" pronounce niche?  Neesh or nitch?

    I used to pronounce it nitch until I saw a YouTube video which prompted me to look the word up.

    According to Collins dictionary, it's neesh, but in AM also nitch. Hope it helps!

    I pronounce it as neesh. Never saw anyone making the same pronunciation but from what you say about youtube, i hope they say neesh as well.

    I pronounce it neesh. It is originally a French word and that would also be the French pronunciation.

    The Oxford dictionary says, rhymes with pitch, but I've only ever heard it pronounced neesh.

    I say nitch. I can't help but think people are being pretentious when they say neesh. no offense to the neeshers out there. I love you.

    Huh, I must be an oddball, because I've always pronounced it "nish" (rhymes with "wish").

    Of course, according to Lou Costello, when you find a niche, you scratch it, and according to Bud Abbot, a niche is a notch. Catch?
