Recently our Educational Ministry is trying to change the way how to evaluate the English skill of candidates of university tests and it hit on Yahoo! Japan's main page.
A comment says, in American English it is pronounced as ˈdā-tə, like, day-ta. On the other hand from my personal experience, I said native American speakers use da-tə, which in my opinion would be correct ( And I got 5 downvotes at my Q&A site simultaneously ).
Which one is correct or more prevalent?
