So your professors start to speak your name, see the A where they thought an O was going to be, get all confused, and replace the vowel with a noncommittal "uh." It does seem that they should take the trouble to learn the right way. But then, they're professors.

Speaking of odd pronunciations, Syracuse is supposed to be SEAR-uh-kyoose, right? Much of the country persists in calling it SAIR-uh-kyuze. I never understood how they got AIR from "yr".
