If Alexa was Southern

Recommended Posts

I wonder.  What happens in a house which has the device called Alexa, and an actual woman who happens to be named Alexa lives?  Wouldn't the actual living Alexa be very frustrated and angry?

That there’s no problem.  First syllable of girl’s name is a long “a”.   The name of that machine Alexa starts with a yankee short “a”.

To me, that would only work if the machine could distinguish between the two different "A" sounds. Just my thought.

Yep.  That's why you can change the name.

I like that.  Change its name to "Echo".   Has anyone ever met another person whose name happened to be "Echo"?
