Talk:EBCDIC

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

The article gives the pronunciation as /ˈɛbkəˌdɪk/ with a hard "c" sound. I've never heard EBCDIC pronounced any other way than /ˈɛbsəˌdɪk/ with an "s" or soft "c" sound for the first "c." Merriam-Webster http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ebcdic and other dictionaries agree.

I'm not changing the article in case the author has information to support the pronunciation currently listed.

The soft C is certainly more common. I do think I've heard it both ways, but it has been a long time. I added the soft-C pronunciation (first). Tx, Robert Ullmann 17:01, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
