How do you pronounce engine001?

Postby NinthCrusader » Sat Jul 11, 2009 1:01 am

I have always, ever since I found this little slice of cyber heaven, pronounced engine001 like this: (in-gen-oh-oh-one) I just wondered if other people say the zeros like: zero, zero, cause I say them like oh, oh.

From a topic awhile back, I remember Mike said it was originally Engine double-oh 1, as in 007 James Bond. 001 used to be a spy game maker if I remember correctly.

It sounds unnatural when you say zero-zero-one, or oh-oh-one...

I remember Mike made a joke calling it engine oh-oh-one when he asked someone to mail him, but I can't find the topic. Darn.

The actual answer, as explained in an old topic is:

001: double oh one
Map001/Engine001: map/engine oh oh one

Zero zero one, is not acceptable, at all.

I actually though it was double-oh one myself, because the first thing I read about it, was that it was a spy game called 001 so I compared it to 007... once you call it somethin for the first time it is weird to hear anything else... but I am still confused... how is it actually pronounced?

I said MAP DOUBLE OH ONE was wierd. It sounds like that from the James Bond (double Oh Seven) series.

Actually it does, I believe Mike has special powers so he can detect when people are thinking the wrong pronunciation. Not sure how he does it but I think it has something to do with those funny trousers Canadian Mounties wear... :lol:

Well as soon as I saw engine001 I had to instantly react to how I would say it. An naturally I took on the oh oh one pronouncing way. It must have been the first thing that came to my mind. The only time I ever say zero is when I am saying a score, amount, or phone number or something like that.

It really doesn't matter how it's pronounced. It's more important as to how it's written.

Because it sounds unnatural that way.

Besides, that would make it Engine0001, which wouldn't make any sense at all.

Somehow I do both. Sometimes I say Engine Oh Oh One and sometimes I say Engine Null Null Eins (German). But believe me, the english pronounciation is much easier and sounds more fluent.

Hmmm,for zero has always been the number 0,and oh is the letter O so I guess that's why.

For some reason I tend to like to drop the second zero so it's simply "engine-O-1". I guess it's because when I say it outload the two "O's" blur themselves a bit naturally. When referencing to people who have never heard of it before I use the full and original title: "engine double-o 1."

Zero zero one, is not acceptable, at all.

LOL!

Yea, I was kinda freaking out there. But I got my cool back now. Literally, I have a cold. It is 70 degrees in my house and I am FREEZING! Anyway, back on topic. I guess that I can re-train myself. I already started.
