I understand that cri stands for Color Reference Index. However, when reading it to myself or saying it I don't say C R I as individual letters. I simply say/think "cree".
I know that Cree is a company and has nothing to do with cri other than they make some high cri leds. I'm just saying that I take a shortcut from pronouncing each individual letter and just think "cree", one syllable, to myself.
Probably seems like a silly topic, but I was just wondering if anyone else does too, or maybe you do something else.
If the mods find this just too stupid to discuss I apologize.
