How do you pronounce "Duplicati"


#1

New user here. Before I start recommending this, I ought to pronounce it right.

Is it like “Illuminati” (I had to search a scrabble dictionary for a word that “ends in ati”).

Cuz the “a” could be long (like “duplicate”) and/or the “i” could be long like “eye”.

Thanks!

i hope it’s “doop - lic - otty”, since that’s how i’ve been saying it to myself and others for more than a year now :wink:
(so yes, it would rhyme with “illuminati” or “maserati” or even “port-a-potty” if i’m correct)

I originally chose the name because it means “copy” in Italian (or just “duplicate”), so I guess the right way is “how Itallians would say”.

I pronounce “duplic” like in “duplicate” and “ati” like in “illuminati”.

Odd - I always thought it was pronounced “that awesome open-source backup tool I use”. :blush:

thatawesomeopen-sourcebackuptoolIuse.com was too long :frowning:

thatawesomeopen-sourcebackuptoolIuse.com is available for only $2.99 for the first year from GoDaddy. Better snatch it up before some squatter buys it out from under you and charges you a fortune to get it later! :wink:

I like that, it’s the same way of pronouncing as in Dutch.
Anyway, at least I’m happy the main developer didn’t call it dupdupdk. :wink:
