it's an abbreviation, not a nickname, in English

Don't care how other folks say it, but just for the record, if Germans don't say "EM EEE", do they say "FuhWuh wun-nien-tee"?

In English it's "Eff Dubbleyou"

"Feb 16 1978:

The first computer bulletin board system goes live on an S-100 motherboard and CP/M, and a Hayes 300 baud modem. Ward Christensen and Randy Seuss's Computerized Bulletin Board System still kinda runs to this day, but the Internet has taken the place that BBS's used to have.

And this is why you have no social life, loser. "

Many LuftWhiners call it LaGG, like Germany called it LaGG all the way to 1945. Granted, Brits and VVS called Fb~109 a "Heinkel" and USA called Ki~61 "Fb~109."

I still call it "L-a" cos that's how I was raised...in Mississippi lol.

What does it matter?

As long as U know what someone means it doesnt matter........kindof impolite to mark words....hmmm.... names.

If one need absolute correctness its maybe best to try to pronounce it in the original language.

in fact FW190 is ***vulf Rundert und n³itssig (crappy attempt to put a german word in english reading)

Bf109 would be: bª ªfª rundert und n³in

Fw190 = Fokkeri

I'm not a russian, but Russian is very close to Bulgarian, so...

It is La, pronounced [la]
LaGG is [lag], short of "lakirovanniy garantirovanniy grob", meaning "varnished guaranteed coffin" Sorry, couldn't stop it...

the russians used "messer"[meser] for the Me109, also nicknaming it "chiroz"[chiroz] as in "church", meaning"dried fish" or "skinny" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

O, how I want to hold you,
To feel your breath
And hear your laughter in my ears.
To look into your eyes
And see myself in there.
Caress you with my lips.
To hold your hands in mine
And find the hidden smile in your dimple
That makes you irresistible
And stops the breathing in my chest.
To be with you when you are weeping,
To wipe away the tears and take away the sorrow.
To watch you while you are sleeping
Like there is no tomorrow.

And with a tender kiss to wake you up.

El Ay for me, but I also use "Lavotchkin".


"Stiglr brought up an interesting argument saying that Me 109 is pronounced Em Ee and not Mee. That is true in English however the Germans did pronounce it as 'Maeh Hundertneun' "

Mee hundertneun is quite right, but also Bee Eff hundertneun. (Bf109)

FW190 has different expressions as well.

- Focke Wulf hunderneunzig (FW 190)
- hundertneunziger (just for 190er)
- Eff Wee hundertneunzig

I seldomly heared somebody say "EIN-hundertneunzig", but that may be just me. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif

This is an interesting topic and I'm glad the correct answer was provided. Thank you.

But why a poll? It's not a matter of opinion. And the highest number of votes won't determine how it's pronounced.

In Brzil, we pronounce that way: (in parentesis for the non-portuguese speakers, but it will sound like portuguese http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif)

FW190: Efe-dabliow cento e noventa (Eff-double-u sent-o-in-o-vein-tha)
Bf-109: Bª-efe cento e nove (Bee-Eff sent-o-in-o-vee)
La-5: Ele-A cinco (Ell-Ah seen-co)
La-7: Ele-A sete (Ell-Ah set)

If I'm referring to a specific version (5 or 7) I say el a 5 or 7. I wouldn't want to say anything else cause "LA" 5 just doesn't sound good to me. I guess it sounds too French. Not that that's bad, it's just a Russian plane, and I don't want it sounding French.

Otherwise, I refer to them as "Lavochkin"

I see that Russians pronounce it with the same sounds than Spanish. We also say "lah", "soo", etc.

Curious enough, I've heard many Russian speakings, and being two very different languages, they are phonetically very similar. I mean that most consonants and vowels sound very similar -except for accent.
