how is Haskell pronounced?

The subject says it all.  I've been using haskell for over a year, but I
have no idea how to pronounce it.  I tend to oscillate between rhyming with
"fell" and rhyming with "full".  In the former case the accent goes on the
second syllable as in "Pascal", while in the latter case it goes on the
first, as in "rascal" or "tattle".  I feel silly telling people what a
great language it is, when I can't even pronounce its name...  :)
