    I know this is pointless, but I'm bored. Do you pronounce 'Kazaa' as Kuh-zaah' or Kah'-zuh? (And excuse me if this has already been discussed here, I must have missed it)


    EDIT: spelling

    I think there is no offcial way to say it.

    Kuh-zaah

    Exactly the way its spelled.

    It annoys me when people say Kaah-zuh.

    Bah!

    I refuse to call it kuh-ZAHH. It sounds stupid, like Shazam! or something.

    I chalk it up to regional dialect, but every single person I know here in NY State pronounces it KAH-zuh.

    Just sounds phonetically cooler than the other version.

    Though anymore I just say k-lite anyway of course.

    You hit the nail right on the head, SJ. I think most people know it's supposed to be Kuh-zahh', but they don't want to sound like they're doing a magic trick, so they intentionally mispronounce it as Kah'-zuh.

    Captain Marvel was a comic book superhero who was a regular dude but when he said "Shazam!" he turned into Captain Marvel.

    If saying "kuh-ZAH" would turn me into Captrain Marvel I would then pronounce it as such, but since it doesn't I'll stick with my intentionally mispronounced version.
