FIDE pronounciation

Disgruntled_Sheep

Undecided Stupid question? Hopefully not sorry. Undecided

I have only ever read FIDE on the internet and have never heard anyone say it. Does it rhyme with tide, or is it feed-eh or something else?

It's not fido? Must be fee-day then.

If you take things seriously, then you start accusing people of passing messages in their yogurt...in short, you end up acting like the people in FIDE. Smile

it's "said" FEE-DAY.  :)

Isn't it spelled and pronounced as "pronunciation"?

FEE-DUH btw

It's fee-day, but if I had a second choice it would be fee-doy-doy-diddly-die-die-diddly-doy-doy-diddly.

I'm pretty sure it's fee-day since it stands for Federation International D'Echecs (give or take some accents), and the D'Echecs part is pronounced 'day-shek'.

Is "fungi" pronounced "fun-jee" or "fun-ghee"?

thought it would be more like fe-fi-fo-fum.

It's FI-DE. Not FEE-DAY. It's with a pure "E" vowel at the end, not the stupid English specific "schwa" sounds. F-I-D-E. FIDE. Phonetically pronounced. As in Latin.

Well English is not my first language but I would guess that it is sounded out as any abbreviation would be. For example BMW is pronounced as B---M---W, however I stand to be corrected ( no, just a minute, I'm sitting down  lol ).

In English, I've heard pros use fee-day.  Pedantic club-mates who argue over how to pronounce pirc and alekhine in 3 different languages (I wish I was kidding lol) say fee-day too (and never argue about that)... so I'm pretty sure it's fee-day :)

Oh dear what is this monster I have created?!?!? Surprised

At least I have a better grasp on my pronunciation!
