A quick question -
How does one pronounce "WYSIWYG" and "Eos?"
wiz-i-wig - all "i" sounds are short "i's"
EE-os. With a long "o."
Eos, I've never heard it spoken actually, but I've always heard it in my head with long "e" and "os" pronounced the same way as in "DOS" or "albatross".
Or maybe we just talk funny here in Dallas.
os like toast was the way I heard the ETC rep pronounce it when touring ETC-Middleton. I've also heard it's the exact same pronunciation as the Volkswagon Car, EOS.

Sorry for the bad advertisement...
Eos as the house board), they pronounce it "Ee-ahs", the same as the Greek goddess. (Source: Eos: Definition from Answers.com, the pronunciation key)
And Wiz y wig.
WYSIWYG. I've always heard people in the computer world refer to the concept as Wiz-E-Wig. The tech theater world in regard to the software application seems to be very inconsistent on how to pronounce it. I go with the computer people.
Eos. I believe the original Greek would have been pronounced with a short e and short o sounds sort of like eh-aw-s I believe ETC has gone with the Americanized pronunciation which is E-ohs. That's a Long E sound followed by "ohs" as in dose, diagnose, comatose, morose
SteveTerry, Sclaussen, Lafalot, Jmabray... can someone give us an official answer?
I believe Aussies are required by law to pronounce both terms completely differently from anything posted so far in this thread.
Separate names with a comma.
