I say it more pail-lee-oh, but closer to pay-lee-oh than the other option.

I'm relieved. That's what I had thought, but someone corrected me irl recently...so I sought out the professional opinions here. :)

Wait, someone in real life corrected you saying pay-lee-oh with pa-LAY-oh? :confused:

What a doofus! :D

Pa-LAY-oh ntologists?

OTOH, I hate it when I think something is pronounced one way, and it is another... but I would never correct someone unless I was 100% positive, and even then...maybe not. It's pretty obnoxious. I would love to correct everyone I heard saying Libary... but I would only correct a child.

:lol: Is she even aware that it's the same term that's part of the word paleontology? I think sometimes people hear a word or part of a word in a new way a lot and it turns into something else in their mind.

But if she really thinks paleontology is pronounced puh-LAY-ontology...well, then my role as devil's advocate is negated :001_huh: :lol:

You can e-mail her my syllable division rules! :D

These, along with the knowledge that syllables ending in a vowel are long and ending in a consonant are short, would produce the proper pronunciation.

Excellent! I won't tell her about my secret hive goldmine of knowledge, though. :D She might want to join and participate...:leaving:
