[NAFEX] Stacey v. Staceyville

Hello,

I do not believe grammar rules apply to an acronym.  I just pronounce it by
the 
sounds the full words offer North Americican Fruit Explorers.
                                          n -     ah  -        f  -   ex

But it doesn;'t really matter.

Later,
Tom

I know there are a ton of exceptions to English, but if I remember grammar
from grade school (a few years ago for all of us) don't you generally use
the short vowel sound when there is a double consonant following?  As in the
words suffix, affix, annex.  Words without a double consonant would have the
long sound, codex, latex, and remix.

If only my teacher could see me now,
Mark
