    [​IMG] Just thought it'd be interesting to see how GBATempers pronounce "pwn".

    As for me... I say it like: poon.

    I thought everyone just read it "owned", but then I heard Cartman say "powned" in the Warcraft episdoe.

    That word should only be written, never spoken.

    I read it as pawn, it registers as 'pawn' missing a letter rather than 'own' typoed

    and I dunno, I think it sounds cooler to make someone your pawn [​IMG]

    I get pissed off when people say it IRL.
    But If I had to, I would say "Owned", because as we all know, it is just a misspelling of Owned.

    I say pwnd, sounds the same as owned with a P. Say it in real life too, usually to my misses when somethin goes wrong in the kitchen or when she loses on Puzzle Quest heh
    Recently started the J'PWND or J'PWNT movement, figured pwnd is getting old so help spread the new variation of pwnd..
    J'PWND!!!

    JA-P-Owned

    I pretty much pronounce it as "powned", that is of course if and when I ever say/type it. I have attempted to pronounce it in the literal "pwned" form, but that's something that the human mouth has difficulty saying. It tends to come out as "pnnnd".

    As we all know it did start off from a typo,

    For the Gizmondo owners out there:-

    its a miss typing of ownd as the 'p' is next to the 'o' duh!

    I always just read its a owned, and its prononced however the fuk you like! Not that i'd say it.
