I like "tear-ass"! You know... it seems more masculine, and daunting, kind of like "The Perch"... Made from massive, dark African Ebony wood, the hardest of any species. You get the picture...it ain't exactly pretty.
Oh, for Pete's sake, doesn't anyone have a dictionary anymore. I'd assume
they are deriving it from the latin word that means round or cylindrical Look it
up! It'd probably be under the "T" section. I've got better things
to do than to get up for you and look up the pronounciation of a word! Like
writing more smart-ass responses and picking my wife up at the airport. T-
E-R-E-S....Go on, it's the really thick book with the alphabet tabs on the edge
of the pages. Not much of a plot, but really informative when you have
questions like this one.
Teres? damn that's an easy one...you pronounce it like this
what I wonder...should french gear be pronounced vees a french accent...should german gear names be uttered vit a thick gutteral accent...what about the new chinese gear...hell...I'll bet some of us can't even pronounce their beer names (tsing tao for example)...in latin countries would the double "L" in Krell be mistaken and used in a manner similar to calle?
thank god for companies like DK
Actually the latin meaning makes the most sense. So it would follow what Tobias says and the latin pronounciation would make sense. Like Teresa without the "a."
TARE-EASE. or TEER-EASE
That's how I say it.
Teres. - When the circumference is circular, but its thickness indeterminate, nearly cylindrical. (L. round.)
I hate to be a subversive in this discussion, but rather than lots of conjecture, anyone think to call them -

Is that staightforward enough for you Tobias?
While I agree that use of a dictionary is apparently old school, use of a phone should be reasonably familiar to all.
The real question now is, when Marco's wife calls him from the listening room
It depends upon the circumstance. Should I happen to be listening to music she doesn't appreciate, and perhaps a bit too loud for her tastes (usually the case anyway), and she's in a particularly bad mood...well, I couldn't print the things she calls me or it would kill this thread! Otherwise, yeah, just "Marco" usually does the trick.
I've only do the "Polo" bit if I'm in the bathtub.
"I can speak whale."
"No, you can't.
"Yes I can. Listen. Teeeeeehhhhhrrrrrrrreeeeeeezzzzzzz."
"Stop that, that's not whale."
"Sure it is. Hey, I wonder if his name's Marco?
"STOP THAT! STOP THAT! STOP THAT!
SOMEBODY WILL HEAR YOU!!!"
"Well, isn't that the idea?"
