This is one of those odd things that’s driving me nuts.

Why is this woman pronouncing coyote as kigh-oat? She’s a zoologist, so you’d think she would know how to pronounce the species name, right? So I’m leaning toward her being right, but is she?

 

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/pronunciation/english/coyote has the pronunciation as coy-oat-tea.

Another video:

 

But the Macmillian Dictionary has BOTH.

Does anyone have any ideas? Webster says it’s pronounced as kigh-oat-tea. The internet has completely confused me. Any ideas?

(And it’s totally not vital – just annoying.)
