Pronunciation

How is "achso" pronounced? :-) --Ihope127 14:33, 24 Oct 2005 (GMT)

Think "ach" as in "Bach" + "So" like the English word, I believe. --GregorR 17:43, 25 Oct 2005 (GMT)
I think the problem may be that many people doesn't know how to pronounce Bach either...--Rune 21:12, 25 Oct 2005 (GMT)
Think "ock" as in "spinlock" then. --Graue 12:32, 26 Oct 2005 (GMT)
I have no idea what a spinlock is (and neither does dictionary.com), but if it is pronounced the same way as lock in english, then it is not an example of how to spell ach or bach --Rune 15:22, 26 Oct 2005 (GMT)
Here are two pages from my local university, Exeter, explaining German pronuncation:
The first one contains a .wav file at the top giving the pronunciation of 'ach' (among other words), and the second one contains a .wav file at the top giving the pronunciation of 'so' (among other words). --Safalra 15:32, 26 Oct 2005 (GMT)
Very nice Safalra. Actually hearing it is much better than trying to understand a written explanation. --Rune 16:27, 26 Oct 2005 (GMT)

Exit command in string mode

In Axo docs \ is not an exit command in string mode, but in C++ interpreter it is. Which one is correct? --(this comment by Stasoid at 03:06, 19 August 2018‎ UTC; please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Welcome to Esolang! The C++ interpreter is correct. This was an error introduced in a big rewrite of the page back in 2009. --Ørjan (talk) 20:25, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Name capitalization

Page uses 3 different capitalizations of language name: Axo, axo, AXO. Which one is correct? --(this comment by Stasoid at 03:09, 19 August 2018‎ UTC; please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Except for a stray "AXO" in the quoted code spec, the original version of this page (made by the language author) used "axo". I have fixed the others now (as well as the \). --Ørjan (talk) 20:25, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
