I always thought it was pronounced Fen-Eth(like meth)-Ill -Am (like the word Am)--EEn

It is right..
The name comes from the constituents of the molecule
Phen[yl] - Ethyl - Amine. There is a post around someone with a short chemistry lesson by Dr. Shulgin

I've often encountered professors saying the names wrong (namely biology professors).

For example Acetyl: the correct way to pronounce it is, "A-set-til" or "A-seet-til", though the professor often said "Ass-set-teel" which is not correct.

So for Ethyl: it would be like the name of a girl. "eth-thill"

For tryptamine the first one was correct.

It's a bit different in the UK, most people here pronounce Acetyl 'Ass-ut-isle'
and amine is either 'A-mean' or 'Am-een', mostly depedning on whetherit is a prefix or a suffix.
so tryptamine would be 'triptam-een'
and amino acid would be 'Am-een-oh acid'
and anyone who says 'Am-I-no acid' is taken to be an American.  :smirk:

I've never heard an american say Amino acid with a long I sound, Am-I-no, perhaps you just take people who say that as stupid, and when you think of stupid then American pops in your head. Then that is a logical deducement.

trip tuh mean

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
