Can anyone tell me what the official pronunciation is for
"CLOS"? We here generally pronounce it as "close" as in
"close but no cigar." I have also heard it pronounced
as "see loss," as if it were spelled "C-LOS".
I've never heard "close", but "klahs" (i.e. "loss" with a "k"
sound prepended) is common. Myself, I pronounce it "c-loss",
as do many others, although this offends one of the central
players in originating CLOS. I, of course, mean no offense,
but I can't speak for others.
Personally, I think that "C" should ALWAYS be followed by (loss);
even adding "++" isn't enough...
