Re: Coop: Pronounced "koop" or "koh-ahp"?

The Swiss Germans in my company all said "koop"...
I must be really out of it - have *never* heard it referred to in Swiss-German as other than "Co-ohp".

As for the pronunciation you are hearing in Vaud - French speakers are bound to pronounce it differently than Swiss-German speakers, I have heard it referred to (in French) as "Copp".
