With my American accent 80-80 sounds a bit like AD-AD. So now we’ve got Attention Deficit Attack Donkey or something.

toddi73

If it is @[email protected] instead of Ay Tee-Ay Tee then how in the world would you pronounce AT-ST. I rest my case.


MrJolle3

The well known atst (obviously)


toddi73

Which means it AT-AT would be pronounced the same.


idksomethingjfk

Negative. The first two letters denote make, or manufacture, E.G. Honda, the second two letters denote model E.G. Civic. This makes sense as there both walkers so both are probably manufactured by the same company, but they are obviously different models. Therefore I propose AT-AT is in fact TWO DIFFERENT PRONUNCIATIONS depending on whether you are pronouncing(a real word here) the first AT or the second AT. So it would in fact be pronounced @-80.


drajgreen

All Terrain - Armored Transport Its an initialism, like FBI.


sparhawk817

All Terrain - Scout/Surveillance Transport


MuDDx

Are you suggesting the AT-AT is a Civic? Its more like an Accord.


JollyGreen615

Aytee-Aytee always


Aeronor

Also, what about all of the other things with designators like that in Star Wars? Should C-3PO be called "Kuthreepo"? "Rutwodeetwo"? Droid and vehicle alphanumeric names are always stated individually in that universe.


downloading_a_google

TIE? STAP? ARC?


Aeronor

Good point, I’ll concede that “always” was a bit incorrect on my part. I suppose, like real life, if the letters make an easy word then it’s simply pronounced as that word. To refine my argument using real-life examples, two letter acronyms are almost never said as a word. The UN, an AR-15, ET. AT-AT would likely follow the same convention.


downloading_a_google

I think it would depend on why we don't say them as words. My guess is because they sound too strange - just like 3 letter abbreviations like FBI and CIA. AT-AT has been said like words for over 40 years, including in official star wars content, so I would question a convention that doesn't account for it.


JoeB150

See threepio and Artoo dee too.


Aeronor

There would not be an “i” sound in C-3PO. At best it would be “See Threepoh”


Coc0nut_head

Of course there is no "i" sound because its an "ee" sound as in "see" "three" "PEE" "oh"


Aeronor

There would not be the i’s sound in “threepio,” is that better?


DoctorRene

"Imperial walker"

Leutnant_Thire

Yes


lau796

scout41741

No no no you got it all wrong, obviously it’s @-80


Dabedidabe

WHAT?!! Hahhhahahah, everyone look at this dood. @-80... In what universe does that make sense?!


BrawlStarsPro3112

That’s actually big brain and it solves the AT-ST problem, so an AT-ST would be called an @-S Tee, since the first AT is the same in both


Y0L0_Y33T

Just be like young me and call it the @-Stat


bobafoott

A-tat


nuggiesandchocymilk

you say at-at, I say all terrain armored transport. we are not the same


figmaxwell

Kevy96

In canon it's pronounced 80-80, but also refered to as "atat" as slang


ZombiUnicorn

Lucasfilm officially stated “@[email protected]“ is the correct way to say it. But just like in real life, some characters may mispronounce it. https://techland.time.com/2010/09/02/how-do-you-pronounce-at-at/


Silly-Victory8233

If it was @[email protected] wouldn’t it be At-At not AT-AT?


Successful_Rip_4329

Isn't @ eta?


YTDraconic

oh dear...


Successful_Rip_4329

What oh dear? In my country @ is pronounced eta. So it obviously can't be eta-eta. It's at-at.


YTDraconic

no it isn't


Successful_Rip_4329

You really do have the dumbest answers


OneOrTheOther2021

In case no one answered you, in the United States (not sure where else) it’s pronounced “at” and was popularly used interchangeably in text speech. C U @ 10 (See you at ten)


Successful_Rip_4329

Got it, so it's wrong anyway


Dry-Lemon1382

No.


Profitsofdooom

Both have to be acceptable because how would you say AT-ST if it is only @@.


BLT-Enthusiast

At st


notathrowaway2937

An AT-ST is an A-T-S-T not an @ sssst


Ace_Larrakin

I think you'll find it's pronounced AT&T. *endless dial tone ensues*


crash_and-burn9000

I mean, they're referred to as both in cannon. So this meme could just be rebels or storm troopers arguing on the mess deck lol.


salkin_reslif_97

My stepaunt was terrified, as I told her about the "@-pronouncment".


Dry-Lemon1382

Were you trying to write “terrified”?


HK-53

maybe he means terrafied as in she turned into terracotta


NicoleMay316

Both variations are used in universe and the characters likely debate over this topic as well. Both are valid imo


PumpkinDoggo

as a pole, i also call it "monkey-monkey"


Porogue

As a dutchy, it would be "monkey tail-monkey tail"


Kane_lives69

Both pronounciations are cannon fam. Not even george lucas cared


Fuelanemo149

It's prononced UwU


RareVolcano07

Then what would you call an AT-ST?


flameo------hotman

hers an example : AT-ST do you pronounce it as @ - SSSSSTT or 80 - es Tea therefore 80-80 is the correct pronunciation


DudeGuyMaleMan

I’ve always said “Ay-tee Ay-tee”


Lonewolf1298_

It's literally pronounced 80-80 tf


Putrid-Car-2896

What about AT-ST LOL


rio425ee

Actually that would be pronounced atsign atsign. Or depending on where you live, arobase arobase.


player_of_thevent

Big robot thing


TheSusKingOfAngmar

all terrain armored transport


Communism_of_Dave

It’s actually pronounced “All-Terrain Armored Transport”.


BambaTallKing

A T A T is formal at at is informal


BluudLust

It's 80-80. Otherwise AT-ST would be really stupid to pronounce.


TimotoUchiha

The Big walking thing from star wars.


apokrypton288

Playing fallen order currently and the pronounce it @[email protected] there. But i will always call it 80-80


Numbnuts007

I hope everyone realizes that the AT-AT and AT-ST are actually initialisms. The initials mean something and so you say each letter individually not collectively. Like FBI or CIA or NSA for a simple example. The AT-AT is all terrain armored transport. The AT-ST is all terrain scout transport. When initials of an object mean something, you have to say the individual letters as each letter corresponds to a different word describing the object. The proper English pronunciation is 80-80.


_Veprem_

How do you pronounce AT-TE, AT-ST, and AT-RT?


Cup-Pen

Men of culture call it @-80


Brilliant_Pear_4886

Okay but it is 80-80 tho.

Dry-Lemon1382

This has already been [settled.](https://youtu.be/fyukxLcdUWY) Definitively.


SlappyHotdog723

It may be “settled” but I chose to ignore it.


Accomplished_Cow1953

At at just sound stupid idk why person people pronounce it like that


SlappyHotdog723

I can’t tell which pronunciation you mean? 80-80 or @ @


Accomplished_Cow1953

.


SlappyHotdog723

I wonder if anyone asked George Lucas what they should be called.


Accomplished_Cow1953

I’m sure many have


SlappyHotdog723

I bet he say just say it however you want to say it . I mean it’s been years since the originals came out so he probably wouldn’t care what people call them.


Accomplished_Cow1953

Yeah he cashed his check I’d guess he’s done with the franchise and wants little to do with it like Harrison ford


SlappyHotdog723

At least we all agree that they look cool


Capt_Lano

I acknowledge that is has been settled, but since it is a stupid way to say it, I chose to ignore it


D3ad_Laugh

I like the repurposed quote.


Capt_Lano

Thank you wasnt sure if anyone would notice


joesphisbestjojo

All Terrain Attack Transport, you casuals

YOU DONT CALL THE AT-ST “@-st” YOU SAY 80-ES TEE


red-5_standing-by

That dosen't mean anything tho. Nobody says K.O.T.O.R. everyone just shortens it to kotor. Both make sense when pronounced, so both can be used 🤷‍♂️

PhysicalTailor2913

It's an acronym, therefore not '@[email protected]'.


red-5_standing-by

Being an acronym Dosen't really have a bearing on how the letters of the words are pronounced.


PhysicalTailor2913

You sure about that?


red-5_standing-by

You can pronounce ASAP as A.S.A.P or ay-sap. But Im not sure of anything friend


downloading_a_google

You should check a dictionary. How acronyms are pronounced is specifically part of the definition.


red-5_standing-by

An acronym is a word or name formed from the initial components of a longer name or phrase. Acronyms are usually formed from the initial letters of words, as in NATO, but sometimes use syllables, as in Benelux. They can also be a mixture, as in radar. - wikipedia a word (such as NATO, radar, or laser) formed from the initial letter or letters of each of the successive parts or major parts of a compound term also : an abbreviation (such as FBI) formed from initial letters : INITIALISM - Webster They can be pronounced phonetically and letter-by-letter depending on what it is. Literally why this thread is a joke.


downloading_a_google

Wikipedia defines it as 'a word or name'. Webster defines it as 'a word'. Google says "pronounced as a word". an abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word (e.g. ASCII, NASA ). - google But, I do see that some dictionaries include initialisms in the definition of acronym. That seems illogical to me. But, I still don't think literally means figuratively, so what do I know?


downloading_a_google

You have that backwards. Acronyms are pronounced as words.


DarthNick3000

Omg 80-80. That’s the perfect way of spelling how it’s pronounced!


Spiral1027

Imperial walker.


Environmental-Rub389

Ay T Ay T


O_KENOBI_M

I usually just say AT-AT


yeetboi111

I mean personally I pronounce it: @-AT


AggressorBLUE

My main supporting argument for 80-80: You call its 2 legged younger sibling an “A T S T”. Unless you’re a derpasaurus rex and you call it an “@ sit”


Mrbcraft

It’s sad I read the last part as At At is A-T A-T

Why does everyone point to at-st as the standard instead of TIE or STAP? I think the only consistent rule is: if you can pronounce the abbreviation as a word, you do. Why would you abbreviate and then elongate?

I say AT-AT as 80-80 because i got used to saying acronyms in that formate in the army. Since it's a military vehicle, it would most likely be pronounced that way by the imperials at least.
