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...
