https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=265247 --- Comment #10 from Graham Perrin <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- (In reply to PauAmma from comment #6) During my years with a University's Faculty of Management and Information Sciences: the name was, internally, commonly abbreviated to MIS but _never_ mispronounced "miss". Always "M I S". Similarly, I never heard anyone say "mitt" with reference to Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Always "M I T". The word NIS appears with NFS often enough for me to believe that "niss" would sound peculiar. I rarely hear NIS spoken, I do recall hearing the "N I S" pronunciation. A number of well-known educational institutions and other organisations use the phrase 'an NIS'. This number is large enough for me to believe that it is an acceptable norm.
