Okay. Let's see.
How do you say pronounciation?
1.) Pro-noun-see-(na)tion
2.) Pro-nuns-ee-ation
Or.. are you special and say it a different way?

It should be "pronunciations", just saying. =P

I call them shoes, unless they are tennis shoes, of course. xP

How you pronounce pwn?
I say it as "pawn".

pwn? well since it was derived from owned, I always thought it was pronounced, poned.

And this one isn't pronunciation, but it's spelling so same category:
do you spell......grey or gray?

Me personally, grey. It just looks better Razz

Hmm... well, #2, and I guess it is spelled wrong. Drat. XD

Well, I either say shoes or tennis shoes. I never say sneakers.

I say it as "pone" as well. "pawn" is a ches piece.

Ohh... I've honestly never noticed this. Hmm... I think I use "gray". According to Crayola, it's.. "gray". Now Webster's has it as...

Gray: 1) Of a color gray
Grey: 1) A variation of gray

So... I guess "gray" has the official def., but grey would still be right. Of couse, this is according to Webster's. Happy

Well... Here's something: When you see "lol", do you say it in your mind as:

1) L-O-L
2a) Lol
2b) Lul

I, actually, say it like "loul". I don't know why; it's like a variation of 2a and 2b. XD

Now that I think about it....I never say sneaker much either....lol

Grey just seems right.....I don't know why.....hmmm

Um when I see lol.....I'm actually saying the letters like l o l. I don't say it like a word Razz

Do you say Aunt.....like
Aunt (ont with an o like on.)or
Ant?

I always say ont and everyone looks at me funny....or they say ant....I don't think I've ever met another person to say aunt except my mom XD

Pro-noun-see-a-tion

I call them trainers. Everyone here says that Smile

I say lol together. Guess I'm much too lazy to say each letter one by one

I say pwn as pawn. /shrug/ I probably do 'cause I played too much chess XD

I use both greys/grays. Whatever feels right.

I say aunt like... the word aren't.

I spell it as gray. Grey looks wrong to me.

Aunt.. said as Ant.
Said as 'ont' if I want to sound refined. xD
But mostly ant.

LOL? Depends on the way it's being typed.
Lol, LOL, lul/z, lol/z, lawl/z
Lul/z would be pronounced as "lull".
Lawl/z, law-l-z
Lol.. Loll, possibly. Loul?

I agree with Holleh.. each syllable or "probly". xD

Av-ridge.

Uhm. Long a? As in, "ah"?
Tom-ah-toe? That sounds funny.
Toe-may-toe is how I say it.

Brock-lee for me. xD

Woods sounds more... public and neat. Forest to me sounds like big.

But usually woods.


Tom-ah-to tom-may-to. That used to be a chant at my primary school.
Whenever someone pretended to be American they used to emphasise the AY so much.
You say tom-may-to here, people look at you funny and ask if you're from somewhere else.



Hairdryer.
