How To Read Archive?

I just found out recently that I have been pronouncing the word "archive" wrongly for the past two years.

It's not:
ar - chive / err - chieve (although it resemble "achieve")

Archive reads:
Arc - Hive

Don't believe me? try Answers.com.
är'kīv'
Don't look at me like that, this isn't a word I use often. In fact, I've never spoken this word to anyone. I've only reiterated this word in my head. Maybe I should talk to that cute librarian more.

So, we have Internet Archives, Blogger archives, calendar archives, library archives

Tags: archive, English, arc, hive,

Yes! Definitely! Cute librarians are always worth talking to!
