How do you pronounce aoTuV?

Okay, I know this is rather silly.

But how do you pronounce aoTuV? Some pronounciation I can think of:
  • a-oh-too-vee
  • a-oh-toof
  • o-too-vee
  • o-toof

Or should we make a poll?

IPA: /aotjuv/
  • /ao/ from Aoyumi's name ??, which is pronounced /aoj?mi/
  • /tju/ from Tuned /tjund/
  • /v/ from Vorbis /v?rb?s/
As an interesting side note, aoyumi seems to mean "blue* bow†."

*In a lot of languages worldwide the colour-name "blue" can refer to green as well as blue.
†A bow as in archery.

Okay I'm totally unfamiliar with IPA...

Is /ao/ read as two vowels /a/ and /o/ or is it a diphthong a la "aww"?

I think it is two vowels, but I'm not sure...

And the /tju/ it sounds like "chu", right?

Haha, so AoTuV builds are "Archer" builds, while the optimized ones are "Lancer" builds.    That's funny.


And kind of catchy.

Nice. 

I just call it: "Auto V."  Yeah, I'm that way...

[edit]: Yes, either make the poll or someone has to PM Aoyumi

COMMENTS=Two ways of pronouncing IPA /aotjuv/, first as a Korean speaker who has learned Japanese, then next as a British speaker who hasn't.
I am almost positive that the first pronounciation is /aotjuve/ and the second is /aotjuv/

You're thinking of [aotjuv?]. (If you can't see the last character, see Schwa.)

// slashes represent what you want to pronounce.
[] square brackets represent what ends up coming out of your mouth.

The traditional Korean pronunciation would actually be [aotjuv?]. (If you can't see the last character, see Close back unrounded vowel.)

My actual pronunciation would have been close to [aotj?v?]. (The middle vowel is the Korean/Japanese close back unrounded vowel, and the last vowel is the Korean schwa that I (edit: probably) couldn't hide.)

edit: Authentic Japanese pronunciation would be close to [aotj?v?], with two close back unrounded vowels.

I think "Kyungjoon Lee"'s latter pronunciation is close to mine. (I'm Japanese.)
The former sounds like a-oh-tu-bu(common name of aoTuV in Japan:蒼粒).

    Well I see the characters alrighty... I assume you use CharMap to put them there? I just don't know how to pronounce them, or if I do a sound, that it must be represented to symbol rather than the other.

Gah these IPA symbols...

If you want, you can click on those links for sound samples in Vorbis format.
Already got them as soon as you post them. I'll take what you say that you're saying [?] in the Vorbis... my comment was that I can't really know what's the difference between [?] and [e]... so I'll have to believe you... oh the world!


Stupid IPA

Check out latest change at HA Wiki's aoTuV page.

I decide to give up trying to find definitive way of pronouncing "aoTuV" and put a link to this thread instead.

Wow... 

I call "aoTuV" A-Oh-Ta-b.
(TuV = TAB)

It is strictly individual pronunciation.

 Didn't see that one coming.

So, we lazy English speakers could call it "Ayotabby"?

Edit: Or is that "Ayotab"? (TuV = TAB)
