No Sxoop for you!


Just looking at the name is headache-inducing. How can you possibly pronounce a name starting with that consonant cluster (Sx-) ?

I guess you can take the X as silent, and pronounce it as "soup" or "zoop."

I think I would pronounce it shoop (IPA /ʃup/) or perhaps sshoop /sʃup/. This reading is, of course, influenced by Basque orthography.

I'd say it's sCoop. Sort of like a K.

"scoop"; that "X" is maybe a chi. :)
