    Well to me it's either "raid-on" or "rad-e-on", unless you got some sort of speech impediment and it could Wadeon :)

    Just curious about this as i tend to prefer "raid-on" less syllables (I'm a lazy man yes)

    I'm not getting how you can pronounce it 'raid-on' - your ignoring the letter E altogether!

    I always thought either 'rad-ee-on' or 'ray-dee-on' but tend to always say 'rad-ee-on'.

    Hrm, I see what you are getting at but I'm afraid the english language just doesn't work like that. Example:

    Let's say you had a word - 'Deon' - how you gonna pronounce that my friend? Don?

    The E is not there to make the 'raid' sound, just look at the word radiator, where's the E?

    (sorry to go on)
