I'm not one for shortening acronyms to sounds unless they are supposed to. People do that with my mmorpg ESO. They call it ess-o. It really doesn't take longer to just say ESO. 

Same with these kinda things, in my opinion.

My husband though pronounces it as fak.

We disagree, obviously.

I say "FÄCK", that's right the middle between "FACK" and "FECK", but using German pronounciation. To use English pronounciation, replace "FECK" by a word unsuited for  sunday's diner table.  :biggrinderg:



I say it both ways, but predominantly say "eff-ay-q" because when I first heard the acronym, everyone that I heard say it would pronounce it that way, so it's been ingrained in my mind.

I will occasionally say it like a word, but usually I say it "FEK" or something like that because I'm a fast talker and it's ever so slightly more efficient than "FAK."



I say "fak"s.  Until recently, I thought they were called Frequently Asked Questions because it shortened to FAQs, and that was meant as a play on "facts".

I always pronounced it as FAKKS because it sounded like the word facts. I’m FAQs they’re answering questions with facts usually too so it made sense :3
