[QUOTE=lucid]
also, curious. anyone call it con'struct instead of construct',
as in the noun instead of the verb?   ? I kinda wanted to, but it just didn't roll off the tongue very well.
[/QUOTE]
I didn't realize that construct and construct have different pronunciations.

[QUOTE=Kyatric]As far as I'm concerned I pronounced 'Scirra' " la" French.
So silent C, "pinched" I (the pronounciation of the letter "e" in english) and open A as in "bra".[/QUOTE]
Thats exactly how I pronounce it, but just because i'm brazilian. Also the double R sounds like H as in "house" or "harsh"

Heh, old thread by the way.

I've noticed over time people pronounce both "Scirra" and "Construct" differently depending on region/accent/etc. I don't think it matters, there's no one "correct" way to say it :)

@Ashley admitted on the first page that he caved and called it "skeeruh". Case closed. LOL

I would agree that the "sc" (as in "scissors") might be a silent-C, but then, "scirra" isn't a normal word in any language (certainly not English). THUS, it's quite reasonable to think that the C is a K-sound letter. sKirra.
