Ericbent[edit]

What is an 'ericbent'? --Dart evader 12:18, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

  • I don't believe there is any such thing. Synonym removed. SemperBlotto 12:23, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

The third pronunciation given, /"prAysAyieusEe:/, appears to be patent nonsense; I'm deleting it. Also, the word is quite commonly pronounced "PREH-siss" or "pruh-SEECE" in American English, with a notable terminal "s". Cf. Admiral Greer (James Earl Jones) using the word shortly before Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin) has to speak to the US President and his advisors, near the beginning of The Hunt for Red October. I'm not going to IPA those and add them just yet though, in case someone has an objection or something. — SMcCandlish [talk] [cont] ‹(-¿-)› 20:54, 24 November 2009 (UTC)
