People who call IOT "IoT" are suspects. No exception.
Isle of Thanet?
I still like that it rhymes with "coyote" myself
I was a scribe of the trickster deities long before I even knew of them
IOT and coyote don't rhyme.
Wait, does Tani pronounce it "Eye-Ott"?
I say coyote like ‘cai-yo-tea’ & IOT like ‘eye-oh-tea’ so I can absolutely see TFox’s point here.
Eye-Ott does not rhyme with coyote...
I think you are meant to say it Eee-Ott like the donkey from Winnie the Pho
I pronounce each letter, so Eye Oh Tea.
Coyote is pronounced ki-yote.
NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! YOU CAN'T DESTROY ALL THE DEMONS WITH A GUN WE WERE GOING TO INVADE THE EARTHERINO NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
haha bfg go brr
I thought you were a Continental, Joan:
I thought it was coy-oat? Hence, coywolf/woyote.
Typical US pronunciation is Kai (as in the Dragon Ball species) Yo (as in the casual greeting) Tea (as in the beverage).
More rural areas tend to drop the end though.
It's a butchering of the original Spanish which is itself a butchering of the original Nahuatl and holy lord I did not imagine something this silly could be so contentious.
This is without getting into how the rules change. Coywolf was mentioned and a lot of people I've seen will pronounce the "coy" like the separate word "coy" when it should, in the interest of consistency, be "kai."
I have embraced the madness. Coyote furs regularly call each other "yotes" and we often pronounce it rhyming with "oats" even though we'll also pronounce coyote itself as "Kai-Yo-Tea"
Now how about crawfish vs crayfish vs crawdads, y'all?
The Burning Legion needs to be crushed!
Have you not considered making a deal?
