  SCSI  n.  [Small  Computer  System  Interface]  A  bus-independent 
  standard  for  system-level  interfacing  between  a  computer  and  intelligent 
  devices.  Typically  annotated  in  literature  with  `sexy'  (/sek'see/), 
  `sissy'  (/sis'ee/),  and  `scuzzy'  (/skuh'zee/)  as  pronunciation  guides  -- 
  the  last  being  the  overwhelmingly  predominant  form  much  to  the  dismay 
  of  the  designers  and  their  marketing  people.  One  can  usually  assume 
  that  a  person  who  pronounces  it  /S-C-S-I/  is  clueless.
