Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

The Chamber, which was a nickname given to it on another site oddly enough. Just stuck in my head when I finally joined up after guesting now and again for a few years.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

Yup, I pronounce is as "kos"
.. to be honest, I've always wondered about this, never actually thought of making a thread. Nice one

I am back, finally.

I am sure everyone pronounces the COS Forums differently to people in real life, where verbal communication is necessary.

Personally, I enunciate the COS Forums as "kos/kaws" Forums.

click here for a sound clip

Many people, meanwhile, mean to argue against my interpretation of the oral pronunciation. Instead, they persist to say each letter individually-- C-O-S (see-oh-es) Forums.

So, how do you communicate to your outside friends, family, and other creatures (either magical or not) when referring to the COS Forums?

I inquire this of all of you.

Well, seeing as CoS is an acronym, I guess it might be correct to say K-ohh-s or whatever, but to me it's C - o - S.

see oh ess forums

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

Like this:

"C" "O" "S" Forums

It's much easier like that and I don't imagine it saying like anything else.

Harry Potter Forum - none of them is a great HP fan, so if I talk about it, I place it for them.
But to a co-member I would use see-oh-es or chamber

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

When I'm referring to it to my family, I usually just say "My forums" because it is the only forum I really use, however in my head (and whenever I type out the address bar) I pronounce it "KOS" forums.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

Well if I'm talking to my friend Steph/Skrewtmaster, I'll usually say "...on Chamber of Secrets..." or "...on C.O.S...". I'll use the latter if there are other people present so as to avoid embarrassment, and I will sometimes add "forums" so they have a vague idea what I'm talking about.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

I usually say the letters C-O-S. I don't think I even say forums.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

I cannot believe the number of people here who call it 'see-oh-ess' forums! I've always thought of it and called it as 'kosforums' so it's hard for me to believe anybody could call it otherwise.

Sometimes it's just easier to say initials, especially if you're a member of several different forums.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

I just say Chamber of Secrets, I never actually say CoS out loud. The only people I tell about this is my family, and they all know Chamber of Secrets (the book) but CoS they wouldn't get. I just tell them it's a Harry Potter website.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

When I'm mentioning it to someone I know, I say "Chamber of Secrets", but if I'm saying it to myself, it's just C-O-S.

Thank YOU! Someone finally understands me...

I don't get people who say it "kaws"/"Kaahs" forums, that's like saying poa instead of PoA, or jkr instead of J.K.R. That and CoS is an acronym, so...

Yeah, I agree, although on the other hand you've got NASA. I don't think anyone says "En - ay - ess - ay" when talking about them do they? But, yes, if you've got the initials of something, you shoud really say the letters.

Buuuut, now I come to think of it, what about "O.W.L's" and "N.E.W.T's" - I say "owls" and "newts" (and "Wombat" )? And S.P.E.W?

Oh, my head...

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

I say the letters. And most of the time I don't include "forums" I'll just think, "Man, I want to go on C.O.S"

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

either "C" "O" "S" Forums, or Chamber of Secrets. That's it, though. When i first became a member, i called is kos forums, but i never pronounce it that way anymore.

Re: How do you say "COS Forums"?

I never say it aloud, because none of my friends or my family care much about Harry Potter. When I think something like 'Maybe I should check the CoS Forums', I think it like Koss (pronouncing it very Norwegian) or Koss Forums (whith Koss in Norwegian and Forums in English, it sounds really weird when you have English and Norwegian words in one sentence), or just The Chamber.
