In English - as in English alphabet: cee-aitch-dee-kay.
In Russuan - as in Russian alphabet : C'e (sounds like the first letter in word 'cent') - H'e (like in 'hello') - D'e (like in 'day') - Ka.

But when GrAnd says it, it comes out more like ZZZetchDEEkeh. Real fast. Reminding me of a code-word being said by a Russian spy in a movie. It's cute.

Let's cut out that piece of audio from his interview, so everybody can pronounce CHDK correctly.

Even better, we can upload something just like Linus Torvalds' record: "Hello, this is Linus Torvalds, and I pronounce Linux as Linux!"

The link should include:

This was recorded by GrAnd himself and should therefore be considered the canonical  pronunciation to learn from. It can be said to be spoken right and correctly. Note: Do not forget the Russian accent.



Sorry GrAnd, I just couldn't resist.  :-X
But Barney is the one to blame.
