    Default Changing slice to slise

    I was just wondering if, changing slice to slise changes the pronunciation? I am starting a business where SLISE is an acronym, but want it to be pronounced like slice.

    Thanks

    I would pronounce it the same way, but there's nothing to stop people pronouncing it differently.

    Well since that's the word u invented, there's no reason you can't make your own pronunciation. Like my English name, it doesn't exist. But I pronounce it in my own way. (Don't ask my English name. People would kill me because of that. as I offended too many people in this forum. )
    To me, it doesn't matter as long as it sounds nice.
