How do you regularly express "regular expressions"?
Communication is weird. Communication, when one party has no idea what the other means, is weirder. Everyone (well, maybe not everyone) I meet has a different way of saying the phrase 'regular expressions'. How do you?
- Regular expressions
- Line noise
- The wrong way
- Other (for the sake of completeness)
I pronounce them 'regex' with a soft g (as in "Lawliet is a prodigy"). I didn't include the letter pronunciation because it would take up too much room (~15 options) and I think I meant this to be communicating online, not in real life. Although, maybe another poll could be how you say them aloud ;D
And you didn't even know bears could type.
