I tried to watch it ,,,, but ,,,,

That voice! , I've noticed that sound is completely fake in most , that from down the back of the throat and like a crow sounds when its going arrrk arrrrk ...

I've seen on tv a normal sounding sheila from that country start talking quite normal but if its being interviewed or in a discussion with a person that sounds like the video the normal sounding one will slowly start arrk arrking sometimes real quick and sometimes just a word here or a word there until its quite often and both sound like robots swapping machine code to each other .. Total fake imo ...sometimes one can even see them listening to themselves to make sure they have the sound correct HaHaHaHa ..

In others like tv cops , one will hear it ark arrrking but then when it cracks the sh_ts or chucks a wobbly a totally different sound comes out mostly higher octave stuff and then it'll calm down and slowly get back into arrk arrk arrking but tuning itself in ..

I spent years studying this phenomenon and believe it or not its actual sex based so they think (not female but sex) , spare a thought for poor me watching our tv out here which is probably 70% American ...ARK ARRRK ARRRRK .

Yeah, I made it as far as "My Sequel".  Gah.  No.  It's three letters.  An acronym.  Not a word.  Three distinct letters, S Q L, not sequel, it's not the follow on to something.

Do you pronounce IBM "ibim"?  No you don't.  So why does anybody think SQL gets any different treatment!

Microsoft started the "sequel" thing. Others just picked up on it. Yes annoying.

Actually, I think it was commonly referred to as SEQUEL by IBMers (who created it) in the very early days.  But I generally pronounce it "SQUEAL".  You know, the sound that a pig makes  ;)

Considering some of the things I've seen some quoted as saying before, maybe that wouldn't be so bad if they seized up.
But hey if this woman is happy with her job explaining technology in this way and isn't being exploited or forced into doing it, that's her business and I would hope that any militant feminists would recognize that.

You might as well just snort  :-DD I normally pronounce it "SEQUEL" and not "S-Q-L"

S.Q.L. does not pronounce well in English, since it does not fit the pattern of an English word.

If we spelled it out phonetically, it would be "escuel", and the stress would fall naturally on the second syllable, as in "esCUel" (natural), rather than the last syllable, "escuEL" (unnatural).

On the other hand, "sequel" is an English word, and the stress falls naturally on the first syllable, "SEquel".

In English, as in all languages, the tendency is to adjust words so they sound right and fit the pattern of the language. Thus, "Sequel".

Any acronym that is pronounceable as a word tends to go that way. For instance, do you say "P.I.N." or "pin"? "S.A.T. or "sat"?
I'm not an EE--what am I doing here?

Rockwell Automation has a product called RSSQL that pretty much everyone I've heard pronounces as "Rascal".

+1, Sequel rolls off the tongue much more easily than S Q L.  On a more basic level, earlier replies seem to work from the axiom that English is a perfectly logical and consistent language, which is a bad start to an argument...

A) I'm gay (shocker, right) so this really does nothing to me except annoy me.
B) Really? You have to sexually exploit women just to freaking learn something? God, what kind of moron is that?! Although, if it were a really cute (but nerdy and not "ripped") guy.... well, I dunno. Yes, reverse sexism.
C) I've always pronounced it as My-Sequel. That's what I learned it as. Plus, it just makes sense, I guess. When I hear someone say "My S-q-l" I kinda twitch for some reason. It doesn't matter either way because I understand what you mean. And that's all that matters.

IMHO SCSI is the weirdest pronounced acronym: skwoezie. And then try to make some Malaysian computer tech understand what you mean. They pronounce it more like skoesie. Like the Italian word for sorry  :scared:

do you say "P.I.N." or "pin"? "S.A.T. or "sat"?

That's a strange set of examples to pick ... pin and S.A.Tees. are the norm respectively AFAICT.

Skuzzee. How I've always said it. AS well as saytah (SATA) and paytah (PATA.) IDE is just I.D.E

That's a good point.  All the other acronyms are hit with a dose of lazy.  Why not IDE?  Iddy?  Eyedy?

My view is, IBM invented SQL (I think), they have the privilege of naming it.  Since they call it SEQUEL, that is the name...

IMHO SCSI is the weirdest pronounced acronym: skwoezie. And then try to make some Malaysian computer tech understand what you mean. They pronounce it more like skoesie. Like the Italian word for sorry  :scared:

@Zapta: lame video indeed. She doesn't get naked.

Control Data Corp (CDC) invented SCSI (so I was told).   They call it scut-zee, so it is.  They invented it, their privilege.

CDC was one of the seven dwarfs (while IBM was snow white) of then.  CDC made the Cyber Super Computer (Seymour Cray's work) - before he went off to build the Cray Super Computers.

It's more ska than sku, think about skull, it's not even close. I don't care what wiki says about sounding like the u in gun or dull. I've always heard it as ska (like the music genre) then zee like the z in zz top.

As for SQL is pronounced sequel as in a tv show.  As for IBM I always pronounced it as "I've Been Moved"

Edit: scut-zee is closer but I've never heard the T so if the T is silent then it will be exactly how I've heard it.
