I've heard a lot of Americans pronounce abbreviations like
goo-ey. Is this the same with British English, or is it more common to spell out the word, like
- Anybody can ask a question
- Anybody can answer
- The best answers are voted up and rise to the top
I think "gooey" is also more common in the UK. I don't recall hearing another programmer spell it out, though I suppose I wouldn't be terribly puzzled if somebody did.
As a non-programmer, but auditor of IT quality systems, I hear the non-techies say "gee-you-eye" while the techies say "gooey".
