just curious..

how do you pronounce it?

CONstruct 2 or conSTRUCT 2?

accent on the 'con' or the 'struct'?


I personally use the first one, I have no idea why. The 2nd one just sounds wrong to me.

According to this: http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.c ... onstruct_1
...it's CONstruct.

ahh I see the problem... is Construct a verb or a noun?

to build something is to: conSTRUCT
a building is a: CONstruct

Since C2 is software, it's a noun. Like for example when using Microsoft Word I never say: I'll be Wording all day. Instead I'd say: I'll be using Word all day.

it's settled then, everyone who puts the accent on the 'struct' is wrong. ;)

There are many post on that subject already. You could use search instead of starting another thread.
