Poll

Question: I've heard people pronounce "whooping cough" 2 different ways. the 1st sounds exactly as it's spelled....the 2nd sounds like "hooping". which way do you say it?

Options:

1 - whooping ....exactly like it's spelled

2 - hooping

3 - other....only because someone will invariably ask for an other option :)

The first, the second way would drive me up the wall. Certain pronunciations really irk me for some reason.

It drives me crazy too. I heard a newscaster pronounce it hooping & it drove me nuts.
