Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

If you're stressing about how to pronounce it - don't bother - you'll never know what it means anyway Roll Eyes

if that's the attitude of people who 'get it', i hope i never do. your sense of superiority is repulsive. how could you know what enlightenment someone else is capable of?

I always figured it is what it is, I never tried or had a need to read it out loud, like most words when you're reading, you see it, you recognize it, it paints its pictures in your mind, you understand it (or don't and look it up) and go on. But if you need more Allen got the most popular answer, there are others.

Audio pronouniation in Italian here - http://www.forvo.com/word/aoxomoxoa/

Quote from:  Yahoo Answers
Apparently, liked it's spelled, minus the first "A" - the title is pronounced "OX-OH-MOX-OH-AH". That's according to the audio version of the Rock Scully memoir, "Living With the Dead" (read by the author and former Dead co-manager himself)

See:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aoxomoxoa

But in this thread, someone claims that Rick Griffin, the Dead's main album cover artist, pronounced the "A" at the beginning:

"Saw an interview quite some time ago & Griffin pronounced it A-OXO-MOX-O-A ...long "A" sound in the beginning & short "A" sound at the end".

See:

Now if I could figure what the heck Anthony posted .... LOL
