I was talking with someone about how SAP (the software) should be pronounced. Should it be spelled out S A P or should you say "sap", as in the tree?

Is there a good stack exchange site for that kind of question?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
That depends, is it an initialism or an acronym? –  user7116 Aug 1 '12 at 19:50
    
In all of their marketing material they sound out each letter: S-A-P. No wonder, since "sap" is pretty insulting. –  Al E. Aug 1 '12 at 19:51
    
I'm pretty clear on it being S A P. But I'm not clear if there's a site for asking about other acronyms, and pronouncing an acronym other than the common way is the surest method to show you don't know what's going on. –  quillbreaker Aug 1 '12 at 20:11
    
I would say on English Language SE But in general most acronyms are pronounced differently by different people. –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Aug 1 '12 at 20:15
