Well, all or most of my linguistics professors have called it /kEr@t/. For at least a year or two I assumed this was spelt "carrot", and most of my classmates that I've talked to thought the same. I began to suspect it might actually be "caret" when I stumbled accross the proofreading term. I'm not sure I've ever seen one of my professors spell the word.
