How do you pronounce UK and USA? Do you say each initial? "you kay" and "you ess ay" Or do you phonetically recite them? "uck" and "oosah"

Me? I like to say uck and oosah.

If you pronounce them phonetically, I feel bad for you and any teachers that have passed you.

US as in You Ess not as in the direct object form of we. Why add the A? The United States of America is pretty long. When you say the United States people know what you're talking about, and US is short for that.

Because when you say uck and oosah you sound like you are just making noise.

That's just because you're not familiar with hearing it.

I don't think someone with "lotr" in their username is in any sort of position to critique the usage of initials.
