How do you pronounce

sudo?

It never crossed my mind that there are indeed multiple ways to pronounce this until I found a thread on reddit about this.

So, “soo doh” or “soo doo”?

For me it’s “soo doh”!

I say it like “pseudo”, but I am Slavic, I have the God-given right to mispronounce words. Also, while I am perfectly aware that the first “k” is silent in “knock”, I am always tempted to pronounce it – it requires a lot of self-control not to do it, not to mention being completely sober…


NB: Just to clarify, I say “sudo” like an Englishman would say “pseudo”. On the other hand, I say “pseudo” with an audible “p”. I don’t say “psudo”, I’m not that Slavic… Sorry for the confusion…

Good idea for an alias - pseudo pacman -Syu. The updates are kind of not real. :rofl:

Never heard “Pseudo” before when it comes to sudo. Where does this one come from?

Super user do = Sudo

From the official documentation at sudo.ws/docs:

How do you pronounce ‘sudo’?

The official pronunciation is soo-doo (for su ‘do’). However, an alternate pronunciation, a homophone of ‘pseudo’, is also common.

Either “soo-doo” or “soo-doh” is acceptable.
