Lance" Subject: Re: Pronounciation of Oxymoron -Reply People who say 'nucular' also tend to say 'relator' for 'realtor' and several others that I can't remember at the moment. They also tend to misspell these words. The -er seems to be a factor in the phonotactics. I'm sure I've also heard 'nuculus'. DMLance
