Pronunciation of Qu-ax?

Well they are gone to Unicon so hopefully they have internet and you will get a reply before August 4th or whatever…

I say something like Kwah-ax.

KH.

That’s 3 for cue axe.

And 5 for Kooh-axe… since I count as a cat and a boy.

wow…that’s what we should have done in the first place! :stuck_out_tongue:

bucock!

I would say: Queue-WAX!!!

Thanks, Forrestunifreak, for finding an earlier thread on the topic…I thought this was such an esoteric topic that I didn’t even search and should have. However, it seems in the earlier thread that no one really knows how to pronounce it. I would think that udc would have the corner on the pronunciation, but Redhead said:

“Unicycle . com said Q.X”

As in “cue-ex”? (Fed-Ex?) Hmmm, that seems unusual. Anyway, when I hear from the company themselves, I will post the response. If anyone is at Uniconn with them, please ask the Qu-Ax people how to say their name!!

Well, that’s hardly fair. :slight_smile:

4 for cue-axe
minus one from kooh-axe for unsportmanlike conduct.

Cue-Axe is in the lead 4 to 3 :smiley:

p.s. I’ve got another one, that’s not worth a whole thread. How do you pronounce MUni is it

m-you-knee
money
m-oh-knee

thanx.

cue-axe
m-you-nee

Sorry just realized that I put a stupidly ambiguous sound in there.

I didn’t mean m-oh-knee as in (oh, that’s not what I shoulda put), I meant:

m-ooh-knee ( as in, ooh…aah)

X

mue-neeeeeeeee

Q-ax

As far as i know its Qu-Ax is pronounced like quacks(like the duck) and not cue axe or somthing else. The reason for that is, that the dog Egon(founder/owner of Qu-Ax) had was called like this. That’s what i’ve heard.

And I pronounce MUni like m-you-nee

A-HA!!! The answer! The answer we’ve all been waiting for, straight from Qu-ax as to how to pronounce their name!!!

I had sent an email to info@qu-ax.com that read like this:


[B]Hello, Qu-ax…
I asked a question on unicyclist.com about how to pronounce the name of your company. Many people had many different opinions!!

Could you please spell out the pronunciation of “Qu-ax”? Is it listed below?

Cue-aks
Koh-aks
Koo-aks
Kwaks

Or is it something else? All of the unicycling community awaits your answer! Please respond immediately. :)[/B]


And here’s the response I just received:


[B]Hi Phil,
you can pronounce as you want, we understand you.

English would be the first version , the Germans prefer the last one.
Importand would be , that you like our unicycles.

Cheers

Egon Becker[/B]


So the English version is “Cue-Aks” and the Germans say “Kwaks”.

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, the mystery is solved!! Now go buy those quacking unicycles!! :smiley:

Phil

Well that took all the fun out of it :frowning:

Haha, just joking, I suppose it makes sense that different nationalities would pronounce it differently.

So it is cue axe, since I speak English. Also note that kooh acks was not mentioned. :slight_smile:

I can’t see how anyone could read "qu-ax’’ as anything but cue ax or or kwacks. Not even kwacks, because there is dash in the middle separating the two syllables.

i say it Qu-Ax…as in Co-Axe
