An observation--in it's advertising, the Karmanos Cancer Institute has very obviously adjusted the pronunciation of it's name, so that it now sounds like Kar-man-iss. Anyone else notice this or know what the background is?

I dunno. It's all Greek to me.

Neal Rubin's column dealt with this on Monday:
Six months ago, Mary Short joined the Karmanos Cancer Institute as vice president for marketing and communications. "When I first started working here," she says, "I noticed that there were a lot of different pronunciations."
With a new ad campaign ready to launch -- it started March 26 -- she logically decided to ask the boss how he says his name.
"Car-MAN-iss," he said

My mother asked me about this since i work at KCI. I've heard said both ways. I say Karman-oss. I worked with Nick Karmanos and he pronounced it Karman-iss.
Either or to me. Tomato-Tomoto
