How to pronounce Shazam?

Postby sparkart » Sat Aug 04, 2012 6:06 am

This topic left me questioning the pronounciation of Shazam. I know if you look on the interwebz, and losetube, they all say sha-ZAM.

All my life I've only heard sha-ZAM, but now that it's a character name, I tend to think it should be more calmly pronounced SHA-zam, rhymes with "chasm", so that it sounds less like an exclamation word like "pow", "bang", or "bazinga", and more like an ancient Biblical name. What do you think?

Here is a composite found on youtube. They all appear to place the emphasis on ZAM

But for the definitive answer you have to turn to USMC pritvate fist class Gomer Pyle

Gomer Pyle is the quintessential expert on Sha-ZAM!
