I know ROFR stands for Right of First Refusal, but when you read ROFR, how do you pronounce it?

Row-fer
Raw-fer
Arr-oh-eff-arr
Right of First Refusal

We say raw-fer in our house and each day we say a little prayer to the ROFR gods that they leave our contract alone!:rotfl:

I was thinking of it as more of a reading test. What people "think" when they are reading about ROFRs. If that makes any sense.

Before reading this thread, I always sounded out each letter and never really thought anything of it. Now I somewhat like the "row-fer" option.

Sometimes, I just say "that darn monkey..."

We say each letter - arr oh eff arr. But we pronounce DVC that way as well.

However, even when the resort names are abbreviated, I say the name of the resort. So, if I saw BWV, I would say in my head (or out loud) Boardwalk.

We are from Boston so we drop the "r" on the end: Raw faaah.
"I hope that wicked Raw-faaah monkey keeps his dirty paws off my contract."

Same! It's funny, it never occurred to me that people might say (or think) it differently than that.

We pronounce it "Right of first refusal." (My wife being a lawyer might have something to do with this.)

Me too. Maybe the fact I have worked with attorneys for the last 28 years has something to do with that. I see a pattern . . . :bitelip: Never thought to use the abbreviation in my head.
