THOUGHTS ON CORRECT PRONUNCIATION: "VI"

Solved!
Go to solution

Intrepid has a piece of hardware named a neoVI.  Most people I've heard pronounce it neo-Vye (as you described like 'bye').

 

Also I remember calling it "C Pound" for several weeks until someone corrected me.  "C Hash" would probably be way to get it wrong.

I would suggest "C-octothorpe" as the most technically correct.

I only stumbled across that word when I was asking "what the He@$ do you call that button on the bottom right of a push button phone?" about the time that push-button phones were coming out into a world of dial telephones.

Maybe not.   C hash seams like the equivalent of spaghetti code in LabVIEW

Or 277.18 Hz... You can even whistle, and every one know what programming language you're using.

 

But we can do that too! Simply whistle a 391.995 Hz tone, when asked what you're favorite language is!

"How's she going eh? I was plaiyin' some hockey with a couple of hosers when one broke me twig.  I told him I was mighty upset eh.  He was quick to say sorry, and say she was a bute.  We made up with a trip to Timmy's about 5 klicks away for some Tim Bits.  He offered me a few toonies for my trouble and it was aboot that time I knew Zed would become my best mate." 

 

My fake Canadian accent works better when you can hear it.  It's like trying to talk with the sides of my tongue always touching the roof of my mouth.

I would go with C "tic-tac-toe". 😄

 

(This reminds me of several professionals back in the days pronouncing ASCII as "ASC Two". I guess they got their IT education during the roman empire, but in that case there would still be ambiguity. It could equally well be "AS 102" :D)

Oh that's another good one.  I've heard a few people pronounce it Ahh-Ski.  The while majority is Ask-key.
