Hey, anyone wanna tell me why the British seem to pronounce Ibiza as "Ibitha"? Just curious. Maybe it has something to do with the Spanish pronunciation.

Lets begin with the pronunciation of the island. Ibiza is spelled in Catalunya, Eivissa. This is the Catalan spelling of
the island. E is pronounced as in the English language EEEE.... BUT v's in Catalan are pronounced like B's and double sssss are
pronounced "tha". Hence the name EBIETHA
