Living in this virtual world, there are times where different individulas can pronounce the same word differently. After recently returning from the TM LAN party in California came to realize this after much taunting.

I pronounce the word "mod" as you would pronounce the word "mode". They pronounced mod as you would pronounce it in modify.

How do you pronouce it?

MODify is it dude. A modification is what you're talking about, and mod is just easier to say than modification.

Agree "mod", as in modification. Sounds like bod, cod, God, nod, pod, rod, sod and Todd.

I also pronounce .gif with a hard G, as opposed to those who pronounce is "jif" like the peanut butter.

I also use "meg" and "gig" as both singular and plural ... 1 meg plus 1 meg = 2 meg. I may be alone on that one, but I don't speak in terms of multiples of Megs or Gigs.

I also only use Hellman's mayo, and Heinz Ketchup, but any free beer is good.

Just for jollies, I sometimes put my pants on two legs at once.

When I answer the phone and people say, "Oh, you sound just like your son!" I say, "no, he sounds like me. I was born first."

Blood type O+. Shoe size 12.

Anything else you want to know, you ... you ...

Mod, as in Modification, since that is what it is talking about. Coax, looks like you are in the minority on this one.

Mod like hod...anybody know what that is? Hehe

I'm with synack on .gif, meg and gig-although I sometimes say megs when referring to RAM. As for the rest-you're on your own, dude....

Because we did the arithmetic and then made the conversion to math.
Modification (but then Coax heard it from us, so he knew that already.
Ya know what it means when a man has big feet and big hands (thinking of you, synack, with size 12's there)?

He also has .....

big

shoes

and big

gloves (LOL)

agreed. Gif like gorgeous.

MegS with an s, but gig is singular, always.

Even I won't drink all free beer. Coors and coors light isn't worth it.

Weird and illogical indeed.

Do you pronounce "cod" as "code"?

Or "nod" as "node"?

How about "rod", "sod", or "god"?

Oh, yeah-beer that's free has to be at least halfway decent. Went to a wedding a couple weeks ago(open bar) and had some Delirium Tremens(Belgian ale-pretty tasty) and good ol' Bass Ale. 'Course, I drank more JD and Coke than anything else-mmmm, free alcohol....

Coax, phonetically it would be mod as in cod or sod, since the vowel sound you hear is the short o vowel sound. Sorry went into teacher mode.

Coax = co-ks
mod = maw-d

if mod were to sound like mode or node, then wouldn't coax = cox?
