It's the PRONUNCIATION.

The how to pronounce plantain debate never gets old 😆

Africans and Caribbeans will never agree on how to pronounce 'plantain'.

People are divided about whether it's pronounced plan-TAYNE or plan-TIN.

I hate the way some people pronounce plantain . It's pronounced (plan-tin) .. not (plan-tayne)

If you pronounce plantain like plantin we can't be friends

I don't really see why any God fearing individual would pronounce plantain like "plantin"

And it can get pretty bloody personal.

If you pronounce plantain "plantayne" you better sit at the next furthest table from me

If you pronounce plantain like plant-taaayn instead of plant-tin, we going to have problems.

It irks my soul when people, especially Caribbeans, pronounce plantain as "plant-tin"
