I have listened to Simon (and other equally sage folks) say "Haskell"
on a few occasions and I believe that it's more like what I tried to
render in text. Perhaps you've listened equally carefully but
disagree; perhaps neither of us is wrong. the English language is
weird that way.

I suppose you would really want to ask Haskell Curry how *he*
pronounced his name, but it's a bit late for that.
