Hi Joseph,

I think that's a very good question :)

I hear people say it differently and the dictionary may explain why. Seems how you're using it in a sentence either as a noun or a verb determines pronunciation. 

As for us, we say the verb style with the long a, so it sounds like 'late' on the end.

The link I shared above has sound clips - so check out the second one :)
