To-may-to, to-mah-to, Let’s call the whole thing off

So I haven’t blogged in a while, to be honest, I’ve been busy trying to learn how to take small sips from a wide-open fire hose of information. It’s been a great first 6 weeks at Microsoft, and I’ve learned a lot and am looking forward to learning more! During this time, I’ve listened to a lot of people talk, some in a classroom, some in online teaching settings, some in video, and some one-on-one… I’ve always noticed how different people pronounce different words, and thought I’d post something about it. I know usually this is a technical blog, and I promise to get back to that. I’m just now finding time to really blog anything, so this is a light and easy one, be easy on me.

One of the “words” that I often listen to see how people pronounce is GUID. I use the term word loosely, because this is actually an acronym, but we so often use it as a word. GUID stands for Globally Unique IDentifier. According to Wikipedia, it can either be pronounced “gwid” or “goo-id”. So neither is right or wrong, and I’m not going to argue that one is. My personal preference is “gwid” but I don’t criticize anyone who pronounces it differently, just often wonder why.

So in my “spare” time I did a bit of research into words ending in –uid and how they were pronounced. Below should give you a good idea of my findings.

Word

Pronunciation

charquid

chahr-kid

druid

droo-id

equid

ěk'wĭd, ē'kwĭd

fluid

floo-id

illiquid

ih-lik-wid

languid

lang-gwid

liquid

lik-wid

noctuid

nok-choo-id

nonfluid

non-floo-id

nonliquid

non-lik-wid

pinguid

ping-gwid

quid

kwid

semifluid

sem-ee-floo-id

semiliquid

sem-ee-lik-wid

squid

skwid

superfluid

soo-per-floo-id

toluid

Tol-u-id

 

So it seems there’s not a true distinction between the two options. Some words use “wid” and some use “oo-id”… oh and one just uses “id”. I think the real distinction is in the letter in front of the –uid. It would be hard to pronounce “rwid” but not hard to pronounce “roo-id” right? So I’ve created a little survey, just for fun to see how people are pronouncing GUID. Thanks to my friend Todd Klindt for suggesting an alternate pronunciation!

 

Happy SharePointing!
