Hey, Cherryh Fans ...

The cloned human quasi-slaves in Cyteen and related books are called azi, an acronym for "artificial zygote insemination," although she doesn't put in in all capital letters. Do you pronounce it:

To rhyme with "lazy"
2(20.0%)
Like the name "Ozzy"
6(60.0%)
As the three letters, A-Z-I
1(10.0%)
Some other way that I will explain in comments
1(10.0%)

I say "AH-zee", with the "ah" as a short sound. I has the non-consistent phonemes!

See, with my very stereotypical mid-Atlantic U.S. accent, that would be the same as "Ozzy."

That's how I would pronounce it too, though I haven't read the book.
