    Low Kay See I think.
    Then again if you want to pronounce it the Italian way, I think you pronounce it Loo Kah See.

    I'm pretty sure it's Loo-Kay-See or Loo-Kay-Zee...

    From what I understand, the cue is named for Jim Lucas, founder of Cue & Case sales. Loo-kah-see

    Oh well, if true, it wouldn't be the first time that a mispronunciation has take on a life of it's own. I've always heard it pronounced Loo-Kay-See, but then again there have been other words that I and others have gone about happily mispronouncing for years.

    Think I'll write my congressman about sponsoring new legislation requiring all post-3rd-grade vocabulary words to include phonetic spelling keys. [img]/ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't think they care how you pronounce it, as long as you buy their cue!

    Lucasi is an Italian name, I think, so it has to be Lou-Kah-See. Italian is one of the Romance Languages so there are no long sounding vowels.
