I was hoping to learn the pronunciation of Gaussian: Gowsian or gorshian? I've heard it both ways. 59.167.0.133 11:55, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Neither. Gauss rhymes with louse, and Gaussian is the same with the normal pronunciation of the -ian ending. In IPA, [ˈgaʊsɪən]. Algebraist 11:43, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
