    LOL at this post!

    I say "i-axe" - "a-jax" doesn't seem right...

    Hay as we can all see by this very definitive survey by the web design community, the community is split, so what can I say. :D

    I believe the "J" is silent, so you prnouse it 'eye'-'axe'.

    Ok right as I have a bit of time before I have to go out, I thought I would do some research, that and thier is nothing on TV for the next hour, lol.

    So as Ajax was created by Jesse James Garrett, who I'm pretty sure is an American, that to me would sugest that it is based on Phonology.

    Now a major part of Phonology is that it uses Phonetics to pronouce words, it would therefore, to me anyway, suggest that A-Jax is how it should be pronounced. However I suppose it depends on where you actually come from.

    The other thing I learnt is that I appear to be quite sad. :lol:

    Happy new year every one, and thank you for correcting my 'i' Bluecote, very much appreciated and noted. :D
