This question has bothered my wife and I for a while now. I've been calling it "like like" (as the the word "like"). Wife wants to call it something totally different. I'm hoping somebody who knows can set us straight. Thanks.
I love trying to type out how to pronounce Hawaiian (!) but I believe we are on the same page. I think if we combine our two phonetic examples someone would get the idea. Basically the same "e" sound from ukulele... not to open a whole new can of worms!Lee-keh-lee-keh
