Whenever I hear someone pronounce it like "ant" I think of actual little ants.

I say "Ont." It may be because my only Aunt is British. But that's how it looks like it should be pronounced. You don't call automobile a-tomobile or Australia A-stralia. Audition, Audio, Autumn, August, you get the picture.1

It's so weird to me when people say "ant." I mean, there's a U right there in the word, clear as day. Like what about a sauna? Do you pronounce that like "sanna" too? My girlfriend says it the "ant" way, we're not from the same area, and it drives me nuts, and what's more, she tries to correct ME!
