router is an the route of somthing, (i.e driving) er.
It simply routes traffic around.
Why is there a poll? It is a word with a specific meaning, definition, and pronunciation as AT has pointed out.
Because personally I've always pronounced it 'rooter', which is the intuitive choice, however 'r-o-w-ter' is the American version....
I unfortunately pronounce it the American way because the first time I heard it was on some the X-Box Live helpline where some foreign was speaking to me.
I try to pronounce it correctly now.
Yes, it's roo-ter
An object that route's network traffic.
is something that Handy Andy uses to bevel MDF.
The British pronunciation is roo-ter, but I pronounce it the American way for some odd reason, i.e. Row(as in Wow)-ter.
Americans are arses and say things wrong.
Any sensible person would call it a roo-ter.
Even Americans don't say rawt when describing a path they took in their car. Sounds more Yorkishire then American to me *shrugs*
Never heard anyone say rawter, and I don't think I ever will.
I use both, normally I'll use "roo-ter", but I've I've heard the american way I'll use that in the conversation just to keep it simple.
sadly, i have ive always pronounced it rowter
I always thought the Americans used rout (route with no 'e') as well as route
and not root and rowt.
Oh by the way 'rooter'
Normally 'rowter', as if I try to say 'rooter' it usually comes out as 'wooter'...
Blast my silly voice!
