I used to say Lie-nux because the inventors name is Linus, but I guess my pronunciation of Linus isnt the same as his. Damn Swedes
Kyle: Dude! I almost thought those Afghani kids talked you into not liking America. Stan: No, dude. America may have some problems, but it's our home. Our team. And if you don't wanna root for your team, then you should get the hell out of the stadium. Kyle: Yeah. Stan: <salutes the American flag> Go America. Kyle: <salutes> Go America... Stan: Go Broncos Kyle: Yeah go Broncos. Cartman: Yeah...
I've always said S-A-T-A but in a recent computer-related video I heard the guy say the word sata (say-tuh). Which is more common?
p.s. I say gooey but that's because I use a program called MeGUI a lot and I don't ever feel like calling it MeG-U-I
S-A-T-A just seems cumbersome to me. I've always, since its establishment, said Sat-uh. I've heard the Say-tuh, but it just doesn't sound right. I mean it doesn't follow directly from the spelling.
But did you ever hear anyone say "Pahta" for PATA? Ahh screw it, you say tomato...
I've always said Pat-uh, consistently. When I don't, I use I-D-E or Parallel A-T-A.
Yes, all the time. I can't think of a time when I didn't hear it that way.
That is, if someone was going to call it "PATA", rather than just "ATA" or "IDE".
I've never been comfortable calling it A-T-A, because SATA is also ATA. I feel like you need the qualifier in front. If I didn't call it pat-uh, I would say Parallel A-T-A, but that's really long. Or I'd just say I-D-E.

It's literally been published in books that the pronounciation is Gooey and Scuzzy for GUI and SCSI. I know because I actually read those books in the library back in the day.
Not saying that books are arbiter of technical language, but just saying.
I'm not doubting the correct pronunciation of it. I just felt weird overall pronouncing it that way and that there just doesn't seem to be an overall definite standard for the pronunciations. (Like how UI, is said out as "U-I" and not "Ueeeyyy", one would think the logical next step with GUI would be "G-U-I" and not "Gooey").
And the same with SCSI. Scuzzy sounds very weird, since there isn't even any vowels between the S an C, to come up with "Scuzzy".
Side note: I am a slight English major so this is probably why it bugs me so much.
