Never heard anything but, "telly". However, it seems like the east coast always like to throw some British or French spin on words. I stay west of the divide and have a California accent, so maybe not sophisticated enough to warrant my opinion.
I wonder how @william tele pronounces his TDPRI name? Whatever it is, it ought to be the standard.
I thought it was Tell-ay, myself.
Or maybe Telé?
People who build MIJ Fender guitars over there think it's "Teleh".
The 3 minutes I spent reading these comments I will never get back.
might be wrong, but seems like this question has been asked more than once.
Telly, telly, telly. Always has been, fur as I can remember. with some leeway for regional accents, but telly.
Now get offa my lawn. I'm fixin' to play my tele.
All of our screen names (unless you are using your real name) will never have need to be pronounced because if we meet, we will use our real names. So you can't really mispronounce them...
For the record, though, I would think my pseudo last name would be pronounced the same as the abbreviated, term of endearment for Telecaster...TELLY!
Well up here north of the 39th it's Telly-eh
[now, where's that emojy thingy...]
The way I pronounce it is not important, being Italian.
But I really dig Wilko's way of doing it!
How do you pronounce Fender?
I pronounce the short term for Stratocaster as "Shrit".
The 'p' is silent.
how do you pronounce television? And its short form?
I answered "telly" but also say "teleh"caster for the full model name.
Here in East Nashville, that gets an R sound on the end. Over across the river, they say it like y'all do. I've lived here all my life, and I still think that's weird.
