Skype, Adobe and Linux Pronunciations
Last few days, I start to actively use Skype to chat with one of my friend, and in our voice conversation, we do talk about the word “Skype”, where I start to have question and doubt on how to correctly pronounce the word “Skype”. There are few version that I ever heard, some say sky-pee, and some say skype (like how you pronounce type, gripe). Then, I start to Google for the correct way to pronounce “Skype”, and I found this http://mrbadak.com/2006/12/11/correct-way-to-pronounce-skype-adobe-and-linux/.
So, the correct way to pronouce “Skype” is skaip, just like how you pronounce type and gripe, and not sky-pee. Just remember that Skype is not the “pee from the sky”, and make sure that you pronounce correctly next time you use that word.
From the page also, the author descript on how to pronounce Adobe and Linux. I think these are the most common pronunciation mistake in IT.
So, the correct way to pronounce Adobe is a-do-bee, and for Linux is lee-nux. Please leave a comment if you have any information for the topic above or you any other common pronunciation mistake.
