How do you pronounce the word "data"? Like "date-uh" or like "Dat-uh"?

I've always said "Date-uh".

Are there any other words you say differently than people around you, or are ambiguous in the way they're pronounced?

I find myself using both. Sometimes Date-uh and sometimes Dat-uh.

I always learned it as date-uh but a lot of people I know use dat-ah. To me they both sound right, but I just prefer date-uh.
