Pronunciation

Anonymous's picture

To the Klooj folks:

You are mistaken: The pronunciation can go either way. i.e., Either
way is correct. There are alternate spellings as well.

I'm with Shawn, klooj just sounds idiotic whereas kludge actually sounds like
what it describes.

I thought your eye was always that way

Funny thing, when I first got linux journal and looking at your editorial shot, I just assumed you had a messed up eye (stroke or something). It was not until I starting watching these tech tips that I realized you were doing it on purpose. Thought you might think that was funny and I wonder how many other people think the same thing.

LOL

It appears as though both pronunciations (and spellings) are accepted. Besides, "klooj" sounds funny to me. :)

Feel free to blame it on my locale. I live near Mackinaw in Michigan, the fudge capital of the world. Figures I'd rhyme it with fudge. :)

Your pronunciation works just fine in Wisconsin, too.

You beat me to it...I've always hated the wrong pronunciation of kludge......kinda makes one look like a n00b ( or is it nub?)

It is actually on dictionary.com (complete with voice sample), phonetically spelled "klooj"

Long U, rhymes with stooge. I know other people say it your way, but it's not right.
