    Same here, the extra 'e' is silent.

    Please provide your input, the mods and admins are very interested to hear how everyone pronounces it.

    I was pronouncing it:

    Twee-leave

    Then everybody made fun of me lol

    So now I say:

    Tweh-lehv

    But only because saying '12' means I have to explain the mispelling.

    Is everyone saying 12

    If so I need to do some search engine optimization because 'twelve forums' doesn't get ya here. (I understand in an individual circumstance you can explain mispelling but generally -in news outlets- they will just say the word.) If we are "twelve".org we are much less unique than something pronounced differently than the number. I'd suggest a different (anything will do really) pronunciation than 12.

    I hear you, C, but the reason I think Tweleve.org is so special is because it doesn't jibe with what you hear when you speak its name. The site brand is all that much more meaningful because you do have to explain it. I wouldn't change a thing.

    You mean it won't work to just have a classy extra "e" as in Anne. We really have to make it be a split diagraph or some other special "e" effect?

    Maybe we should just say "12 with 3 e's"
