    now for somethign taht actually seems debatable...

    how do you pronounce "pwn"

    many poeple seem to say it differently...

    i personally pronounce it jsut liek "own" but with a P sound at the beginning "pown", i guess. sounds much liek "moan"

    my brother says a bunch of his friends at school pronouce it "pawn" which seems really odd, and mostly retarded, to me.

    i pronounce it like owned but closed my teeth tight (only the lips are opened, like when grinning) when im saying it so it sounds like... pwnd

    My friends pronounce it that way too. Just try it, say owned but close your teeth tight instead of opening your mouth wide to make an O. The beginning would sound like a p.

    I pronounce "pwned" just the way it's spelled...like "owned" except with a "p" sound at the beginning.

    I used to think it was like "pawn" like "porn" lol but with a slightly more w sound, but now its widely known to be pown, I only found this out a few days ago when i heard slacks remix of this song and he goes pown! and everyone else does so :p

    To me it looked like, for the p: puh, the w:wuh, the n: nuh, which makes kinda pawn, i don't really see how its pown tho :p puh-ow-nuh I guess ;\

    Anywho, Anyhow, i'M gUNNA pWN j00 ;p wewt! omg .... now we have covered n00b and pwn, how do you say w00t!!!?? :D I think this is a symple one, its just like wewt right ... but what the heck does it mean? I never knew exactly what woot meant and why :s lool ....

    I've only heard one person say 'pwned' and he pronounced it like 'poned'. I, on the other hand, would never say 'pwned' in public.

    When I type 'n00b', I'm thinking of saying it, "nooob"

    When it's "pwned" or "pwn", I oddly pronounce the p, for a "Powned", etc... but in public, I say owned, heh. Oddly even my non-gamer friends knows what "own" and it's plural forms mean... it's like another way of saying, "you're mah biatch", or, "I own you"

    OMG! :eek:

    I can't believe this thread.....
    How can you NOT know how to pronounce these basic words?

    Then again, I can still remember when w00t and pwned were first used....
    Damn, that makes me feel old :lol:


    P.S. HI to all the familiar ppl in here, I'm back, after 2 years of not coming here :D Hope anyone remembers me....:p

    How could I stay away with such an interesting thread. The whole thread just called for me telepatically :p

    Well, it's nice to be back after 2 years of (almost) absence :)
    (Although I did post in 4 threads a year ago :p)
