Is this noun really pluralizable? It somehow seems uncountable, but maybe I am wrong.

“It is the nature of ambition to make men liars and cheats, to hide the truth in their breasts, and show, like jugglers, another thing in their mouths, to cut all friendships and enmities to the measure of their own interest, and to make a good countenance without the help of good will.” — Sallust

I've never hear it said the way the IPA currently represents it, before. But in-NYM-it-ee is closer to normal pronunciation. --Connel MacKenzie 23:59, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

It’s the only pronunciation given by the OED; perhaps the *[ɪˈnɪ.mɪ.ti] pronunciation is an etymological hangover, considering the many historical spellings which spell the word with a vowel betwixt the ‘n’ and ‘m’.  (u):Raifʻhār (t):Doremítzwr﴿ 02:09, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
