  • Pronouncing Phoronix

    Hey everyone.

    My friend and I had a discussion lately about how to pronounce Phoronix. English is not our native language, so we wouldn't know who is right.

    My friend says: Phoronix
    I say: Phoronix

    Completely off-topic, I know, but does anyone has the answer?

    I don't know which is right, but most people I know put emphasis on the second syllable.

          Here is a daft attempt in International Phonetic Alphabet

          [f ɜr ˈoʊ n ɪ ks]

          Oh well, back to work.
