Neither. Ginmakeisallok is correct. It's Pee-UH-knee

Pee-uh-knee. Emphasis the same on all syllables.

This is one of those words I can't refrain from pronouncing in a comedy posh accent. As in "I say, have you seen pee-orn-ey, I ave lost it whahle I was playing the grande piarno".

I am childish. blush
