How Do You Pronounce "Nisus?"

Post by martin » 2004-09-08 15:37:40

This is, without a doubt, the most frequently-asked question we hear. If you refer to your Nisus Writer manual or your nearest unabridged dictionary, you can confirm that nisus is an ordinary English word deriving from the Latin <i>Niti</i> meaning "a striving, effort, or endeavor." It is pronounced to rhyme with "Nice us." Hence the old pun, "We have the Nisus word processor in town."
