re: How do *you* pronounce sudo? VIEW POST


I use soo-doo because it is the compilation of the phonetics from the command's unabbreviated form:

superuser do


No, it's not superuser do. It's from su command "switch user". Also check the man page that says "sudo, sudoedit — execute a command as another user".


Non-native speaker here, asking just out of curiosity: if phonetic (assuming English) why isn’t that syou-doo ?🙈


You're totally right. It should be:

superuser do

I just looked it up and "superuser" is one word. I'll correct my original post.

Also, as a native English speaker, I'm sorry the language is so weird.

Totally that is what we day ”syou-do” because it's superuser do.
