How do you say "COS Forums"?
 
If this thread is in the wrong sub-forum, move it where it should, please.

I am back, finally.

I am sure everyone pronounces the COS Forums differently to people in real life, where verbal communication is necessary.

Personally, I enunciate the COS Forums as "kos/kaws" Forums.

Many people, meanwhile, mean to argue against my interpretation of the oral pronunciation. Instead, they persist to say each letter individually-- C-O-S (see-oh-es) Forums.

So, how do you communicate to your outside friends, family, and other creatures (either magical or not) when referring to the COS Forums?

I inquire this of all of you.

I say COS as kaws instead of see-oh-es.

I say it like it looks - cos. I don't say the letters, just Kos. It's weird saying each individual letter.

I say it like kos forums. Most of the time though I'll just say C.O.S forums(spelled out), Mugglenet, or the Chamber of Secrets forums.

I just say the letters. With one exception, I do that for all the forums I belong to.

In my head, I say it as 'kos forums' but out loud, I say C.O.S forums or the Chamber of Secrets forums.

:lol: Great thread.

I say each letter individually. I may slur the letters together, but I never say try to pronounce it as a whole.

I don't get why you'd pronounce it "kaws".... wheres the 'w'? I say it like 'Kos'... one word.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

Um...I think maybe they were trying to represent a variant pronunciation of the vowel sound, possibly one of the American pronunciations of a Short O, which in some places sounds kind of like "aw" or "ah" :whistle:
