Default boke?

OK I know it gets asked from time to time, but we have a new crop of new
students on the bbs including myself. How do you pronounce "boke?" Do you
put the emphasis on the first or second syllyble? Also, I think it refers
to the blur behind my focused subject. Is this correct?

It is also commonly spelled "bokeh," which gives you a better clue for
pronunciation.
Either way works depending on where you are in the world, but around here,
more folks will recognize "bokeh" than "boke."

The two-syllable word "boke" is pronounced like the "yble" in syllyble and
refers to the pleasant brown blur seen through the bottom of an empty
Guinness Stout bottle. And I prefer the plural to the singular, if you get
my drift.

Dang, the things you find out on usenet! Thar' ye go, Mr. Jimmy "Clever-ass
