THOUGHTS ON CORRECT PRONUNCIATION: "VI"

Solved!
Go to solution

Always heard skippy.

 

EDIT:  Also this is going a bit off the rails should this be moved to Breakpoint?

People, how do you pronounce SCPI? I say often: "tsipii" 😄


I say it properly: "skippy".

 

And for gif, I pronounce it "Jif".

 

I must be getting really hungry.  I just named two peanut butters (Skippy, Jif).

I would say no for now. It is still on the topic of how do we pronounce X.

 

Moving it to the Breakpoint will reduce readership.

Somehow, I assumed it was already in the breakpoint, but yes, the entire thread should be moved. 😄

I'd say that's a second for the motion to move.  No solutions on BP.  But, hey. I would vote nay

When kids started actually pronouncing "lol" I stopped playing counterstrike online.  i realised I was too old.

My kids aren't allowed to curse but they regularly simply pronounce "stfu" (stafoo) to each other..... I've tried cracking down, but I somehow admire their spirit. 

 

And of course amongst all such discussions, here is your obligatory XKCD reference....

 

xkcd, sometimes styled XKCD,[‡ 2] is a webcomic created by American author Randall Munroe. The comic's tagline describes it as "A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language".[‡ 3][2] Munroe states on the comic's website that the name of the comic is not an initialism but "just a word with no phonetic pronunciation".

 

Stolen unabashedly https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xkcd

 

That guy had the right idea, why even open that whole can of worms..... Every technical invention should have a non-pronouncable set of initials.

I had never heard STFU before.  (Perhaps my former life as a Sailor insulated me from that particular XTLA)  SNAFU, and STBY (Snafoo, and stubby) I've heard. as well as BLUNT (Better LUck Next Time)  A google search will answer all

According to english pronounciation rules, 'fish' could be spelled 'ghoti'

tough - gh sounds like 'f'

women - o sounds like 'i'

potion - ti sounds like 'sh'

ghoti.

I always pronounced the "o" in women as an O.  And I always pronounce ghoti as "goatee", mostly due to one of my favorite bands back in the day (Ghoti Hook).  So now I know that I have been mispronouncing words my entire life.  Next thing I know, people will tell me I have been mispronouncing creek as well (pronounced "crick", yes I have hillbillies for relatives).


"Fish Hook" kind of makes more sense, no? 😉
