    Proper pronunciation is Dah-leks

    I think it might be an accent thing too.

    Just like most Americans pronounce Dr Who DOCK-TER WHO and Brits say DOCK-TOUR WHO.

    Compared to Brits, Americans do funky things with vowels all the time

    Dah-lex, as in Dah-ling!

    You know, the posh way, as they firmly believe in their own superiority.

    I'd say Dah-lex is more with an "open mouth", and Darleks more closed and more of an emphasis on the R.

    Boy, what a serious discussion about an old pepper pot!

    Don't feel bad. I'm a fan, and I pronounce it that way also.
