hey it is aluminum-- check it...
hey just as a note- figured i'd be an arse in here, for i've had this conversation about aluminum with an english chap that worked here with me at a boy scout camp during the summer--- here is a web site that proves aluminum is pronounced al oo min um, for it is spelled that way. Here's the proof - directly out of the periodic table of the elements:
make sure you notice that it has no I in the end such as: alumin( I )um, but instead is spelled aluminum (notice no I) therefore, no EEEEEum sound. Thank you (*stick* - in the side that is).
