    POLL: How do you pronounce Omega?

    Just a bit of fun as I always wondered what the correct pronunciation of Omega was until I watched Casino Royale and heard Daniel Craig say it (I assume he said it correctly).

    So, tell me how you say it...

    Not the same way Daniel Craig said it. Om-e-ga just the same way as the greek letter.

    That's the way I used to say it until I watched Casino Royale. I assumed that Omega must have insisted that Daniel Craig say it properly seeing as they have financial interest in the Bond business.

    Not that I wish to argue, but, a couple of the James Bond websites quoted a senior exec at Omega who stated that EON Productions cleared Daniel Craig's pronunciation of the name befor the films release, having spent millions of dollars on product placement, Omega did not wish the company name to be mispronounced infront of a worldwide cinema audience.
    Which is fair enough I guess.

    An I reckon Craig pronounced it Oh-me-ga

    Regards,

    Sean

    Hi Sean, that's exactly my way of thinking. There is no way Omega would have allowed it to be phrased incorrectly in Casino Royale. Product placement is everything for them and if it wasn't for Bond they wouldn't sell half as many watches. I always thought it was "Om-e-ga" until I saw the film. I must admit it did surprise me at the time.

    Well it's pronounced like the Greek Omega most everywhere I have been. I don't know how marketing let Bond mispronounce it! The girl said Rolex properly! The Brits have been butchering the English language forever. That's another reason we Americans wanted our independence. We Texans have our own version of English, we say Omaaayga.
    I just think that things should work the way I expect them to.

    Query: how do Brits pronounce the last letter of the Greek alphabet?
