Well, it's spelled Kidde, but it's pronounced Throat Warbler Mangrove.

DeusxMac,

Non of the pronunciations listed above. It's spelled Kidde. Pronounced kid-uh. Straight from the company.

I've never spoken the word out loud, so I can't really say I pronounce it at all.

"What's your name?"

"Janofski"

"How do you spell it?"

"S-M-I-T-H...they're all silent, never mind!"

Seems to be a German name; has no silent letters.

Their own TV commercials pronounce it KID-uh (schwa e).

1. Actually that's what I was shooting for with "Kid•eh"... •ah, •eh, •uh dunno smiley

2. I have heard, and used, "Kid•ee" for years; and the poll indicates I was not alone.

For the record, the question was "How do you pronounce Kidde", not what's correct.

Kinda like how do you pronounce Adidas*?




*Correct is ah'•dee •dahs, accent on the first syllable, not the second.

That's my feeling, be it person or product.

Porsche is another proper name that cracks me up.

I've never heard a representative say the name, and haven't been interested in known what the manufacture uses.

But I've seen many a 'spirited' discussion of how it's supposed to be pronounced via the 'Porsch' and 'Porsche' devotees.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I like to pronounce it fancy like.
When I see the neighbors' kids takin shelter sittin under on my covered front stoop.
I yell out the winder, "Get off my porsche!"

How to Pronounce “Porsche”

"The correct way to pronounce “Porsche” is actually as a two-syllable word: 'Por-shuh.'"

DeusxMac,

You can pronounce Kiddet anyway you want but that doesn't change anything. There is a correct way and an incorrect way to pronounce it. Pronounce Kidde the incorrect way and you're not saying Kidde. You're saying something else. Just like people pronouncing library correctly or, pronouncing it "lieberry" which is most certainly incorrect.

Yep. It's German. Pretty easy to figure out.

One thing I've noticed traveling some of the planet, other cultures make more of an effort in pronouncing things the way they're intended but in the US many take pride in pronouncing it however they want.

Of course how much emphasis is on that ending "...uh" sound will depend on which regional German dialect is spoken. Standardized German has spread, but not replaced the various dialects found across Germany.

Not sure how you concluded that I DIDN'T want to pronounce Kidde correctly. Don't think I even implied that I do.

DeusxMac,

Seemed obvious to me because you didn't list the correct pronunciation in your poll.
