I believe that it's pronounced just as it's spelled.

I hear his name called repeatedly to recieve awards at the NNL North show in Minnesota every year, and I believe it's pronounced "Mass-Cue".

The English language as used in the US has a number of phonetic changes in your dictionary. For example centre is spelt center, and tyres is spelt tires to name but two.

One of the things I find a bit odd is that US English is referred to in that way but English English is referred to as European English instead of Original English?

I have also noticed a number of Americanisms gradually being used instead of our original terminology over here in the UK. What we called Flats are now being referred to as Apartments and a Post Mortem is being referred to more as an Autopsy. Nothing wrong I hasten to add but just things that I have noticed evolving over the years.

Hello Bugatti Fan. I enjoyed your post. I often find that language in the UK is wonderfully descriptive. On my most recent trip to stay with friends, mention was made of the "Chemist" along the way. We would refer to them as "Pharmacist's." The schooling is in chemistry and the life work never stops being the same.

Hi Ya'll!

       Yeah, Since I have retired I found myself going from the "King's English " to American English to just Plain "Southern" American with my Southern Accent. Doing this years back confused folks. They actually were surprised when I referred to a rest-room in Little Rock as a "Loo". I actually had to take a language and diction course to be able to give speeches when called upon to do so.

      At least here in New Braunfels,TX. they still understand me . Seems Texas speech is the same as Arkansas English!
