There Needs to be a Poll

There are no rules to pronouncing acronyms, so there's bound to be some variation. Nonetheless, I'll bet there are some acronyms we all pronounce the same way. For example, I bet we all read AN as "ay-en" and not as "anne".

Similar to AN, other acronyms are pronounced by reading the letters aloud: I bet we all say "el-oh-el" and not "lull"; "de-el-de" and not "dild". But not all acronym's are pronounced letter by letter: I, for one, pronounce QOTM as "quote 'em".

All this by way of an introduction to a recent debate on the pronunciation of NRAF. Let Ay-En decide!

Remember, this is a vote on the pronunciation of an acronym. It is not a debate on whether I'm right or Poppy is. It is not a popularity contest between me and Poppy. Because we all know how that would turn out...
