Default Pronunciation - DIABOLO

Hi,
I´ve got a student who´s preparing a presentation about juggling. Diabolo is one of the objects jugglers use, (see this page for a picture http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diabolo). But i don´t know how its pronounced. As its a spanish word, i want to pronounce is as in Spanish, but it´s probably pronounced differently. Can anyone help me on this one?
Thanks

I'm not sure this is right or that the IPA schwa will show up, but here's my guess:

Or maybe di:əbəlou:

I've been thinking about it as I procrastinate hoping it gets too late to do any real work

I think this may be what Mark meant but the symbols didn't come out ..

DI as in delay
AB (stressed) as in abject
O is the schwa sound as in robber
LO pronounced the same as low

Diabolo
