As an Italian and Castillano speaker I tend to pronounce the last part with a flattened tongue... MAHN-TEE-LHA.

It's a fancy word for something put over a bread-table.

Since the word seems to be Spanish in origin, I use the Spanish pronunciation, which is as others noted, "man-TEE-uh."

I don't go around correcting other people who anglicize the pronunciation, however. "Appropriation" of language has always been culturally legitimate, eh? (and no, I'm not Canadian )

Yeah, I don't correct people, If they say "man till uh" I know what they are talking about...

Thanks for all the replies. Seems like whether or not there is a right way, people say it and it is accepted both ways. I didn't have the confidence to say it at all, which is silly.

Just call it a veil... thats whay I do! Besides, I don't always wear a mantilla, I like wearing a stylish scarf. They both serve the purpose.

I have pronounced it both with and without the L's. No one has corrected me nor have I corrected them for the way they say.
