prescriptively, it's on the kil, just as it's on the cent and the mil. the LOM
pronunciation is on analogy w/ thermometer, barometer, pentameter. but
the meaning of "meter" in those is a bit different.
A-HA! Thank you. I knew the KIL pron was more regular, but you have
supplied the rationale I lacked.
