    We did this before to confirm that sj's preference was for clitorii (bite it, Zeke ;D ). Now we have another nettlesome thing in our midst to decide. What say you?

    If you say it with a certain inflection, it sounds like two syllables, but it's really one methinks.

    You ought to add three and four syllables for our Southern friends, dools.
  6. Trick question. There are zero syllables in smile.

    Truly depends on where you're from, but to say there can only be one way is dictionary dickish...a phrase I wish would take off in 2008.

    My mom, a sweet Southern belle-type from Rome, Ga., somehow stretches it to at least three.

    Forget syllables...everybody knows it's spelled smyle. Sheesh, some people.
