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... -------ferko Ferenc Gy.
