You say PAy-ta, I say Pah-ta

Recommended Posts

I go into a long explanation/digression about the SATA interface a few days ago.

I got a blank look when I talked about the 'Sah-Tah' interface, and had to say Ess-Ay-Te-Ay to make myself clear.

So, does anyone else pronounce it phonetically, or do you spell it out?

And, should I say SaY-TAh, instead of Sah-Tah?

I was going to post a response with the pronounciation I use, but then I realized that I almost never actually say those acronyms out loud. I usually just keep it to "Serial" or "Parallel". But if you're going to say it, I personally think Sah-Tah sounds better than SaY-TAh.

BTW, when was the last time anyone ever pronounced tomato "Toe-Ma-Toe," outside of the context of the saying?

If you hang out with enough people that actually KNOW what "SAY-tuh", "Sah-tuh", and other drive interface pronounciantions are, I have ONE QUESTION FOR YOU:

When was the last time you had a date? With a member of your preferred sexual target group? Not a downloaded image?

IMHO, some people need to get out more.... :lol:
