Back-er or Bake-er? posted 17 Feb 2006, 23:02 by Mog-Pharau, Peralogue

The subject sez it all...I love to recommend your books to others (and in fact I have gotten one friend to read them so far), but when doing so I always stumble over your name, usually giving it both pronuciations in turn. I figured if anyone would know, it would be you. :) view post

I think it's Back-er. That's how I say it anyway. view post

Scott answers that question here : [url:751ukr7c]http://forum.three-seas.com/viewtopic.php?t=444[/url:751ukr7c] It's pronounced as "Bake-er". view post

Richard... I was originally named after my grandfather, but then he and my pop had a falling out. Needless to say, this made me one confused little tot. view post

What I really want to know is how Scott pronounces these words: potato tomato either nuclear And of course... about :P view post

A blessing in disguise, from a publicity perspective - "Richard Bakker" would be even easier to confuse with "Robert Bakker"... view post

I pronounce 'potato' as 'potato,' 'tomato' as 'tomato,' 'either' as 'either' (people usually laugh at that one), 'nuclear' as 'nuclear' (and not, as GWB does, as 'nookewleer'), and lastly, 'about' as 'go screw yourself Larry!' :wink: view post

You wound me to the heart, Scott! But I should be honored of sorts, I suppose. After all, how many authors tell their fans to go 'screw themselves' in a public forum? :P *ponders setting up a [i:35pcovlh]Bakker is Our Dûnyain[/i:35pcovlh] website in revenge* ;) view post
