I would like to find out the most common way to pronounce the acronym FOUC, which is short for Flash Of Unstyled Content. (I'm fairly certain the most common way to say it differs from the proper way to pronounce it according to English rules.) This is a term that probably only programmers and web designers have ever heard of, but I don't think the question is appropriate for stackoverflow.com, particularly because there may not be a correct answer. It seems like it might belong in an English forum, however I worry that would be the wrong audience for the term. Is there a proper place to ask this sort of question?
Whether they will actually accept a question this domain-specific or not is another matter.
Please don't ask these kinds of questions on the programming sites. We have an (unofficial) close reason on Programmers that reads like this:
This question appears to be off-topic because it is a "name that thing" question. "Name that thing" are bad questions for the same reasons that "identify this obscure TV show, film or book by its characters or story" are bad questions: you can't Google them, they aren't practical in any way, they don't help anyone else, and allowing them opens the door for the asking of other types of marginal questions. See https://blog.stackoverflow.com/2012/02/lets-play-the-guessing-game
So you can imagine how a word pronunciation question would be received there.
I'm fairly certain that FOUC is not an English word. Therefore, it would not be appropriate on a site dedicated to the English language.
I rather suspect it isn't even an acronym; not every sequence of four letters is meant to be pronounceable. But I may be wrong.
Does this actually matter? Are you referring to this concept verbally so often that it has created a problem when communicating with others? If so, it might be appropriate on Programmers. But this is a long shot; I've never heard anyone try to pronounce this, and I sincerely doubt doing so is common.
At best, this might make a reasonable topic for idle conversation in chat.
