Paul D. Clement stakes out latest controversial position -- how to pronounce the "A" in Chick-fil-A: Clement is known as the darling of conservative litigating causes, and based on its founder's political views (and very tasty products) Chick-fil-A is a favorite eatery of many conservative chicken lovers (no, I don't mean it that way).

Putting all that to one side, close behind the mystery of what foxes say is the vexing question, to quote Yahoo! Answers: "Do you pronounce it Chick-Fil-AY or Chick-Fil-uh?"

This past Tuesday evening's broadcast of the PBS NewsHour contained a segment titled "Can corporations exercise religious rights? Supreme Court hears case on contraception coverage." At approximately 2 minutes and 27 seconds into that video segment, Clement pronounces Chick-fil-A as "Chick-fil-uh." With all due respect to my esteemed appellate colleague, the restaurant chain's name is pronounced "chick-fi-lay," because they are selling you a boneless piece of chicken.

In further support of my position, I respectfully refer readers to the Twitter postings of Chick-fil-A aficionado, and self-pronounced conservative Texas Supreme Court Justice, Don R. Willett (pronounced, for present purposes only, "will-lay") here, here, and here.

Or, you could just watch this Chick-fil-A commercial on YouTube and see at the very end of the commercial how the announcer pronounces it.
