How Do You Pronounce PoIR?

Postby Kotohime » 18 Mar 2012 01:29

Out of the blue, I wondered how people pronounced the acronym of the site, PoIR.

Of course, I don't run around screaming it at the top of my lungs, but I still mentally pronounce it as "Pwah", sort of like "noir" with a hard P.

So, how do you pronounce it?

I'm throwing my nonexistent hat in the 'pee-oh-eye-arr' camp.

A Danish pronunciation that I can't even write so the rest of you can read it. I'm tricky and evil like that!

If I were to write it in Danish though, it would be "pøj-er".

For the longest time I've been pronouncing it "pwaar"...or perhaps "pu-waar"? In anycase, don't ask me why. That's just what I've been doing.

My own way to pronounce it is similar to the "Pee Oh Aye Arr" method, but with french pronounciation of the letters so I sound more like "Pay Oh Eee Air"
