Hi all, just a quick two questions: how do I make an interrobang, (it's ALT + some numpad stuff right?) and what is the phonetic pronunciation of Cuil? Thanks!
I just copy and paste ‽ from other sources. I don't know if there's a keyboard shortcut offhand, wikipedia lists ALT+8253
apparently it's ‽ to get it in HTML as well.
As for pronunciation, just say it like "cool", but with a some soft emphasis on the u sound of the first o in cool so it sounds a little weird. That usually gets the point across conversationally.
The problem is, I can't help but see that and think 'queel'. Even since the beginning of cuil.com, I've wanted to say that, even knowing that it was supposed to be 'cool'. It's such an annoying word. No wonder they failed. Google is so obvious: google. There's no other option.
bit late to the party, but how about a sound clip with as many variations (eg: difference accents, etc.) as possible so we can all hear it to learn how to say it? because, really, i see and think ‘queel’ too ;)
I will now always pronounce it as "quill/queel" simply because this pronunciation is at least one Cuil from the 'proper' pronunciation. It's the only logical choice.
i would use the pronunciation from the actual website the cuil is named after (http : //en . wikipedia . org/wiki/Cuil) but honestly you can really pronounce it however's comfortable because nobody you ever talk to about it will object.
its not like they know it any more than you do
who do they think they are
somebody should tell bill nye about cuil
