WOW-ay. Although sometimes I say it "wow-way," too.

The second syllable has to be pronounced "way" because of the "Weird Al" Yankovic acronym. That much is clear. That leaves you with the first syllable "wo." #solved

Pretend the first W isn't there. Would you think it's pronounced "o-way," or "ow-ay"?

I can't possibly be the only person here who has no idea what any of you are talking about?

We're talking about how you pronounce the acronym of the forum, WOWAY.

Pronouncing it whoa-way honestly never even occurred to me until I heard Kevbo's award presentation. It's kinda blowing my mind that the forum is pretty evenly split.

But then again I'm a native New Yorker who didn't realize her pronunciation of "horrible" was weird until she entered college....
