"Yag-hurt-thai" Jaghatai

In regards to things like the latin Skitarii etc, I always thought it was said like "Skit-ahh-ree", similar to how Rome 2 says "Sock-ee" for "Socii". Amusing as it is.

I wouldn't really call any pronunciation inconsequential. While you may not have to converse with people in that language, for the sake of correctness, why would you not speak it correctly?

Then again, you're American. "Soccer" :p

Let me hop in my time machine and I'll do it no problem.

Go back 140 years and the English would be calling it soccer.

Why do you think we Americans call it soccer?

Doing some research, it looked like you English called it soccer all the way up through the 70s.
They would?

As for up to the 70's, everyone I know born prior to the 70's calls it footy. Christmas Truce? Call football. If you mean as an Oxfordism, then yeah, "Soccer", a bit like "Rugger", for Rugby, or "Redders" for Red Hot, or Fiver for Five Pound Note.

Thing about all of these? They're slang.

In America, it's language, and not ironically spoken.
