I used to pronounce it 'root' but lately I have been saying 'Rowte'

 

Although I have always said 'Rowter'

 

How about you?

I say 'Rowte', I also say 'Rowter'

 

If you say 'Root' you should be barred from saying 'Rowter' and are to only use 'Rooter' - that way you sound silly and might fix your bad habbits

If wood working, then always r - out

 

 

 

If talking direction path, then r - outer for electronic component,

 

 

 

and a mixture of r - out or root depending on who I'm talking too, and how much I think it'll crack me up.

Router is pronounced rauta

I thought it was rowta in the US and roota in the UK.  And because root is a bad word in NZ people say rowta like the Yanks to spare their blushes.  Having spent 20+ years in the UK, I forgot and said to someone recently 'I'm rooting for you' which got me a funny look.

Because the Graphics Interchange Format should logically be pronounced with a soft 'g'?

 

<snort> Giraffics Interchange Format...

I just have a quiet giggle when stuffy people are talking about network connectivity and say ROOTER.

 

 

 

But that's just me.

 

 

 

(P.S.. I pronounce it ROW-TER).

Remember, the English language is tough, but can be understood through thorough thought.

It depends on the context, for people and other things I pronounce it root for packets it's rawte.

 

There's also rout which can be pronounced both ways depending on the meaning.
