It's much easier like that and I don't imagine it saying like anything else.
Makes sense to me!

To those who say it kaws or whatever, I have comeback

If you say it K - aw - s, do you say things P - oh - ah (PoA) or J -krrr (JKR)?

Our way makes more sense.

Oooh, so true! That way is definitely better...

To clarify, I say it c-o-s, naming the letters. Though I never really talk about CoS out loud, and if I do, it'll be "Chamber of Secrets Forums", usually with some explanation about it being a website to discuss Harry Potter because I'm a geek like that. But it's c-o-s in my head.

Precisely what I do, explaining "Yes, it's...this website, see...Chamber of Secrets..." (At this point, I either quickly change the subject or walk in the other direction.) I don't spell it out in my head, but then I don't really say "Kohss" either.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

Never in my life have I said it out loud but I'd say it 'cos' as one word, if I ever did.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

Well, when discussing it with my friend (she's a member here, also) we usually just say "the messageboards" .

But when saying it in my head or whatever, I usually say "koss" (rhymes with "moss"). I never have to use it verbally, though.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

I have a habit of saying abreviations how they sound, rather than the letters out loud, so naturally I pronounce COS "kos/kaws." I also say LOL "lawl" , etc.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

I say "COS" out of instinct, and invariably proceed to correct myself and spell it out instead. It just sounds better to me as an initialism rather than an acronym.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

I pertain to it as "that harry potter forum" since some would not understand me if i say either "Kos" or "see-oh-es"

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

Most of my friends are non-HP people, but I talk about them enought at I can just say "The Forums" and they know. But in my head I think of it as see-oh-ess.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

Most of my friends are not HP fans. However, If I were to say it, it would be C-O-S Forums.

C-o-S Forums is how I've always said it, or simply C-o-S

Well, actually CoS isn't really involved with Mugglenet. They are both run by completely different people. It really is nothing more than an affilate.

OK. But the banner says "Official Forums Of Mugglenet.com" so that's why I use the name.
