Which do you think was the correct spelling of the room?

I personally think it was Size.

If memory serves me right, didn't we come up with another spelling of the room's name? I can't quite remember how it was spelled, but I always assumed the theory behind it was a fictional name.
Crazy, but that's how it goes.

The suggestions have been size, sighs, or scythes. There was even one more, but I forgot it.

I think Sighs cause it sounds a little bit more reasonable than Size.

Not only does "Scythes" make no sense whatsoever, but I also don't think Olmec's pronunciation in Season 1 was so bad as to completely omit the th sound.

"Size" could make sense given that the ledges were in some cases very tough to maneuver through.  But, I think it's "Sighs" because of the similarity between "Cave of Sighs" and "Pit of Despair."

Yes, and I was the one who came up with Scythes! I came up with it because of all the stalactites and stalagmites in the room could be referred to as scythes.

Actually, TAW, according to the Merriam Webster Online dictionary page for the word "scythe", there is a variant pronunciation of the word that leaves out the "th" altogether. Look for yourself:

It's the second soundbyte. And if you use the plural "scythes" with this pronunciation, It does sound like the Olmec pronunciation.

I vaguely remember that All 4 versions were once discussed on this Forum, I'll Investigate and see if I can unearth the elusive 4th version.

Olmec's pronunciation isn't that bad. He couldn't have said "Signs".

What I meant was that the fourth proposed name was "Signs." Of course it couldn't be that.

As I said before, my guess personally is that it was "Sighs."

Yeah...I think it was 'Sighs'. But it could be 'Size', since that seems to make sense, too.

'Scythes'? 'Signs'? Uh...no. :roll:

I was bored so I went through the talk page of the LOTHT Wikipedia article, and apparently the fourth one is supposed to be "Sais", an Egyptian city according to Ed. He also thought that it was "scythes". I'm so sad, right? :P
