I've only ever heard people say "M dot two". So I just assumed that was the correct way.

This. I've actually yet to hear anyone say something else that isn't "M dot 2"

 

The weird ones I hear are usually those who confuse M.2 = NVMe, so they call it NVMe instead

I did heat about calling it M2, since that's the name used in user's manual when it comes to pointing out locations of everything (M2_1 for example)

Äm-kaks probably. Though I think I called it Äm-kakkos- when asking my brother about what adapter he needs for SSD. Äm is pronounced like "am" in "I am". "kaks" is like sax, but with hard k.

I say m dot two and I HATE IT.

There is no reason to say it that way (well, there is the dot but also you really dont have to say it), but every techtuber says it like that so it just became burned into my brain.

 

But nothing bothers me more than the way Riley says OLED.

Also, why people say LED as "el ay dee" and not just led? But when saying OLED they do say oled instead of "o el ay dee"? Mysteries of humanity.

 

 


Ultra is stupid. ALWAYS.

LAD? o_o

 

seriously though, because if someone says "and the board comes with leads" you'd think of header pins first rather than the light-emitting diodes ._. unless it's pronounced like the metal, then that's better, although you'd get looks from most people (... wait, i'm not answering the question. 'doh)

 

also OLED gets the pass because nothing else can be implied with it ._.

There's no official way of pronouncing it. As long as you're not completely off the mark, I don't think it really matters.

I think it depends on a combination of what what rolls off the tongue easier, the context, and what makes it less confusing. Like nobody pronounces "USA" as "yoo-sa" or "ooh-sa" (I'm sure the separate letter pronunciation is official). But when I hear "USAF" (US Air Force), it's always "yoo-saf". But then again if you say the letters fast enough it almost sounds like it anyway.
