Words matter in ‘ISIS’ war, so use ‘Daesh’ - The Boston Globe

Words matter in ‘ISIS’ war, so use ‘Daesh’ - The Boston Globe:



That lefait is very crafty! Is this pronounced ‘douche’?

LOL, Lefait is pretty crafty. He knows a lot of things about a lot of things, too.  In this case he knew what was up with calling them daesh nearly 2 years before almost anyone else over here figured it out.  I don’t think it’s pronounced douche. I pronounce it dash. Sometimes I wonder if it is really supposed to be pronounced with 2 syllables: dah-esh. But I’m not sure. Maybe @lefaitjugelhomme can clarify.
