Oops! I'm sorry, A738a!

I just glanced at your "ain't that sure..." and took it as "am not that sure...". That was why I left that comment of mine. No disrespect intended at all...!

MARY,

Always a pleasure.

Gabriel Sowrian,

Hence I wrote, "I ain't that sure about dies and dice, though."

@MARY __ Yes, "dies" is pronounced "diez" with a buzzing sound zzzzz as in "buzz". On the contrary, "dice" ends with a hissing sound sssss as in "bus".

Gabriel Sworian, 'dies' is pronounced 'diezzzz'... as if you were lisping? Uhm... okay... Lisping is fun, I don't have anything against that.

@ A738a

The words 'dies' and 'dice' are not homophones.

'Dies' ends with a /z/ sound (as in rise), whereas 'dice' ends with a /s/ sound (as in rice).

Sure thing, Olga.

Hope your students feel the same, ya know.

I ain't that sure about dies and dice, though.

Nobody likes a kiss-up, Roman. Ya're welcome!
