I say meh-di-eev'-al, but a lot of us say meh-dee'-val. I guess we really ought to pronounce it the way you do, (how do you say it?) as you guys were around then and we weren't! But fat chance getting us to spell it the way you do!
We say it the same way as you (I think) med - ee - ee - val. Four syllables instead of the three which most of your countrymen employ. The US method shortens the middle bit into one ee sound.
