A minor tussle broke out in Gizmodo comments today when one of our writers dared to write the phrase “an URL.”
The issue at stake? None other than the correct pronunciation of this crucial acronym. If it’s pronounced “earl,” then one should indeed write “an URL.” If it’s pronounced “yoo arr ell,” then it’s “a URL.” How do you pronounce it? Which is the correct pronunciation?
The fate of civilization is at stake, so I hope your answers are substantive.
