You say tomato, I say...

OK, my curiousity was piqued the other day by an quick exchange that I
had with the regular calc teacher at my school.

We apparently don't pronounce the word concavity the same way.

How many people say "concavity" where the last half sounds like the word
"cavity" (my dentist said I have a cavity...)?

How many people say it so the "a" has a long "a" sound as in neighbor or
weigh?

Just curious. e-mail me and I will post a results summary.
