Reminds me of the scene from the Tom Hanks movie The Wonders where the band is originally cute with the spelling, Oneders, and an emcee introduces them as the Oh-Nee-Ders.

For the opposite effect, does anyone else find themselves pronouncing gnu (the animal) with a hard G, a la GNU?




guh-new vs. new (referring to wildebeest) is something I remember from days before rms' GNU even existed.
