    Definitely hamik,
    stress on the first syllable,
    and the second vowel is just a nothing of a sound, barely even a "schwa" (i.e.the unstressed sound like the "a" of "about").
    It's almost hamk.

    Tomato, tomato...hey wait that doesn’t make any sense now that I typed it out.

    I say ham-ick, and my father says ham-hock ( and laughs every time).
    I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. - E. B. White (1899 - 1985)

    Perhaps my central PA : Hem-ick / he-am-ick is influenced by my hammock loving Kansas father.

    Ham-ick ... because it's simple, smooth and easy ... but according to the dictionary types ... I "be wrong"

    It's "Ham-mick".
    What do those folks at Websters know anyway? (They probably sleep in tents, when they go "hike-in" and "camp-in"). And let's not even get started on the fact that there's actually only one "p" in "Punk-in".

    I say Ham-mik most of the time. It fluctuates with my mood i guess. I do make the double m sound though. I don't mind leaving off a letter at the end of the word (hike-in) but please don't leave out the 'L' in wolf... it drives me nuts.

    I have decided this is how it kinda sounds when I say it...Haam-ock, once again being from the south I'm sure what i think it sounds like and what it actually sounds like is completely different. Around here a gud ole suthen gentelmaan, has no need for tha letta "r" in most words.... and lots of long aaaaa's.
