I just want to say that you can still win the pronunciation.

Or just blame it on Mr. Gibbs retroactively.  :D

I'm on side jib-ering as well.  If it helps the argument, my fiance (who is a Ph.D. candidate in Lingustics, who wants it made very clear that it is not a professional opinion :P) thinks so as well.

Either pronunciation is acceptable, though 'jibbering' is certainly more common.

Given the number of times I've heard people catastrophically mispronounce terms from Malifaux, I'm not sure how important it is that we agree on an official pronunciation of Gibbering. You can always rely on people to find new and amazing ways to screw up speaking words. :P
