I'm not sure if this qualifies for the off-topic forum or not, so I'll just post it here and hope for the best. wink.gif

How do you pronounce bass in your head? I know almost everyone except for the newbies will pronounce it aloud as 'base', but how do you pronounce it in your head? Honestly, whenever I see the word, the pronounciation that comes to mind is 'bass', as in the fish. I've asked a few friends of mine this question, all of whom pronounce it aloud as 'base'.

Just one of many odd questions that pop up in my mind from time to time.. rolleyes.gif
