I say it the RIGHT way: koo-pon. :)

Dr. Turtle said...

A. Koo-pon

(thought I don't get my panties all in a bunch when I hear B. Que-pon)

Never, ever, ever heard anyone say C. Koo-pin. Weird.

A. said...

Koo-pon.

I've never thought about the pronunciation of coupon before!

Iris Took said...

I say Koo-pon also and some people at work make fun of me because they say it is clearly Que-pon. Then there are two other people at work that say Koo-pin and I think they just say it to make me mad.

i say A). Koo-pon. i've never heard C). Koo-pin. weird.
the last guy i dated used to criticize me b/c i said it like "A" and he said it like "B" and INSISTED it was "B".

Hurley said...

Okay ladies and germs...I say Kyoo-pon, or what is closest to B., which A. and B. are the only correct ways to say it. ALSO, I have heard koo-pin, and the other member of that hillbilly family, que-pin. I, however, hate how people say button like buh(nano-second pause)tin, and pronounce pillow and milk with an "e" instead of an "i."

TLC said...

i either say:

koo-pon

or

que-pon.

guess it depends on the day.

I responded to your face kick message you left me, please read for a moment of clarity...you can erase this though.

Kristen said...

I say Que-pon. But I talk weird, so maybe you shouldn't follow my example.

All Things Red said...

que-pon all the way!!!

Nadja said...

I say koo-pon. I had an ex-boyfriend that said kyoo-pin and it made me want to punch him in the face every single time I heard him say it.

Hurley said...

Isn't it funny how some times it takes very little to want to punch the ones we love in the face?

Nadja said...

Some day I'm going to be on cops for punching my husband in the face for the way he eats ice every single day. Am I awful?

Hurley said...

My wife has "trouble" eating salad and chews weird. I don't think that I would punch her in the face, but I would definitely shoot a look of disapproval her way.

que-pon... but sometimes i'm like "that sounds weird" and i try to change the way i say it to koo-pon... but it never lasts
