>>
It's actually OY VEY
>>
Oh-vah is how I go.
>>
OVA -> OH VEE AY
over -> OH VAH

i say oh-vah and expect people to figure out that i'm not saying "over" when i use it as a noun
>>
I grew up saying Oh-vah because I grew up in a romance-language speaking country. Oh vee ay makes more sense for english.
>>
>>134724548
Same here.
>>
oh vee ayy
>>
>>134723688

OVA(オーブイエー)
>>
>>134723688
Yes.
>>
>>134724245
goy, please

I say 'OH-VAH' and I am a native English speaker.

Well, I used the word 'say', but I don't speak out loud about OVAs, so it's more like my mental narrative.
>>
You need to delete this thread it's offensive to muslims
>>
>>134724328
>over -> OH VAH
brit pls you skipped a letter
>>
>>134725451
Shouldn't that be オーブィーエ?

Do they pronounce acronyms like regular words in other languages? What's the point then? You might as well just abbreviate.
>>
>>134726418
Pedantically, we pronounce acronyms as regular words in English. What we don't pronounce as words are called initialisms.

Now you, too, have some knowledge that will never, ever, matter.
>>
>>134726418
V is pronounced ブイ and A is pronounced エー. It's fun listening to a Japanese person say "DVD."
>>
>>134726520
That's the best kind of knowledge, thank you.

As soon as I posted I thought, "Wait a minute, what about shit like SEAL, SOCOM, or LASER? Oh well too late now."

>>134724548
This for when I'm speaking in my language.

And Oh-Vee-Ay for when I'm speaking with the rest of the world.
