I'm curious. For those which you can pronounce according to English laws,
such as TAT or SOAR, do you say [t&t] or [ti: ei: ti:] or somesuch?
I've wondered about this often, as Hungarian will tend to pronounce
acronyms as a word, even to the point of violating hungarian phonetic
rules (what i mean is even if the Acronym couldn't possibly be a word in
Hungarian), whereas in my experience English speaker would end up saying
TAT as [ti: ei: ti:], even though it could well be a word in English...
