I say puh-tey-toh, you say puh-tey-tuh
I say tuh-mey-toh, you say tuh-mah-toh

Sorry, it had to be said ;-)

However, saying Stata rhymes with data creates the same problem -
regional variations of data include: dey-tuh, dat-uh, dah-tuh, and
yes, the New England dey-tur.

But if it wasn't for variation, why would we need Stata?
