Wouldn't the pronunciation be of each letter, not as a word? May I ask where you're getting these pronunciations from? · Tygrrr... 19:25, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Both, I am currently trying to fill in the acronymic pronunciations of all the acronyms too (which means the letter by letter pronuncation). However, as with "lol" on wiktionary EN, there is a pronunciation of the word as a "word" too. Benniguy 19:30, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

You may want to read this again because I don't think you understood it correctly. TTYL is an initialism, a word that is spoken by saying each letter. I don't believe it's an acronym. Also, you didn't answer my question as to where you're getting these pronunciations? · Tygrrr... 20:09, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

No i do understand what you mean, but like "lol", i think it can be an acronym too. And I am basing the pronuncations of the words that rhyme with them. for example, "ttyl" rhymes with "teal" (the color). If you mean where am I getting the rhymes from... i am basing them on the common usage, and also when unclear, on the way the word would be pronunced governed by the (few) regularities the language has on letter-prunciation. Does this answer the question? :p Benniguy 20:16, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
