    OK AJAX experts - how is it pronounced?

    Really simple question for you guys. How is AJAX pronounced?

    Is it like the dutch football club Ajax (I AX) or is does it stress the A and the J like this - A J AX?

    I am just interested in how it is actually pronounced.

    Thanks!

    OK thanks. That's what I thought but I was definitely not certain. I wonder if others think so too...

    JS is quite an important part of AJAX (imagine Asynchronous [and] XML, ) so why would you not want to say the letter? If I had to choose between I AX and just plain J I'd go for J.

    How an acronym is said often has more to do with what is easy and fast to say rather than what will accent the different words effectively.

    the name is originally a greek mythology character, so ask a greek.

    probably I-Ax but i prefer Aye-Jacks.
