Has anyone heard the dark elves called themselves Druchii?

I know this a regular topic around here, but has anyone heard in game how the dark elves or anyone else pronounces Druchii? I imagine this would be as close to fluffy as you can get (ignoring all the rest of the murdered fluff - let's not get into that), and I have yet to notice any elf saying it.

Dru-tchee (as heard in Warhammer Online)
or
Druk-hai (as heard in Mark of Chaos)

Pick the one that rolls off your tongue easier.

They say Dru-tchee online? That's a shame.

I'll stick with my Dru-Kai, though I know it's wrong. :-(

Thanks guys.

It's not wrong.

Mark of Chaos is as official Warhammer product as WAR is... and they pronounce it Druk-hai.

So the moral of this story? Even GW products are inconsistent with their pronunciation.

I can deal with that. In warhammer 40k that means I can have my See-Tan while Cypher weild a Kuh-Tan phase sword.

Ah, I love ambiguities.

Threadomancy a bit here but for some odd reason I always used 'Dru-tchee'. The alternative never even popped up to my mind.

It's like the way some Chaos God names are pronounced.
I always said 'nurk-el'
While Dawn of War says 'ner-gul'.
Same for the way Tzeentch is pronounced.
