  • How do you pronounce...

    ...Petri?

    1, is it "Petri" as in "pee-tree"?

    2, is it "Petri" as in "pEH-tree"?

    3, is it "Petri" as in "pEH-tr-EYE"?

    4, is it "Petri" as in "pee-tr-EYE"?

    5, is it something I could never have thought of, like "Petri" as in "Dave the mad carboard box with a little hole in the top"?



    Is it even important? For what it's worth, I always thought it was "pEH-tree" (like in "deftly").

        That's how I pronounce the "Petri" in Petri Dish. So is it the same for Daniel's last name?...

          "Pet Ree" -- also as in Petri Dish (from my vague memories of high school Biology)

              TBH I'd say Pet-ree too.

              Is Daniel on a holiday or something.

              This is the sort of post where I'd expect to see a comment from him at the bottom
              saying

              No smartie points for you lot and "BANNED FOR TWO WEEKS" for dissin to Boss's name

                It's supposed to be PET REE although I've heard Americans pronounce it as PEET REE. The first one is the right one.

                    Did I just see a Washingtonian admitting to an accent?!

                      I prefer option 5 - it's both more mysterious and more appealing to my horrifically offensive sense of humour

                        Sure we have an accent but all US commercial media shares it.

                          I spell it >>>>" Pe tri" ( Where "T" is not actually english "T" . For example when we call "Tree" , Yes we give pressure on "T". But here the "T" is littlebit silent.
                          But I am not sure about the actual pronounciation of "Petri" word in Hebrew language. I affraid Mr.Petri might get angree. Might he dont like.

                            Sco, it ain't that hard if you just look at how the owner of the name pronounces it.
                            1 1 was a racehorse.
                            2 2 was 1 2.
