Re: Pronunciation poll - PUL

I say "pull" in my head, but "P-U-L" on the rare occasion I actually speak it.

Ditto, the correct way to say it is P-U-L.

I've never heard it called p-u-l only pull that's weird with 2 diaper stores here in town you'd think i would have heard it and i took a diapering class at both and they called it "pull" too. Maybe it's a Midwestern thing kind of similar to saying "pop" instead of "soda"?

The first time I heard someone call it "pull" I was like, "Huh? What?" It took a sec for me to figure out what they were talking about.

Since it is an acronym for PolyUrethane Laminate, I just refer to it by its letters. Besides, I think calling it "pull" sounds weird
Oh, and since the other similar fabric in diaper making, TPU, is an acronym for Thermoplastic PolyUrethane, it makes sense to call both by their letter names. Unless you want to call TPU "tee-pooh" or "tpoo"

My husband still corrects me that soda is pop lol I'm apparently a Midwest rarity....
I use the letters for PUL though....
