    I pronounce it with four syllables. Guess I’d better become more efficient.

    Reba McEntire has been known to hit 8 notes while singing a 3 syllable word.

    It has to be odd. Ef·fi·cient has three syllables, so of course, it is odd.

    And if Efficient had four syllables or two syllables, it would be even – which would still make it odd (for a three-syllable word).

    Make sure you put the emPHAsis on the correct sylLAble (has to be said out loud)

    As a former elementary school teacher, I remember most children with his level of curiosity and insights, were seldom able to sit still very long.

    And why is “abbreviation” such a long word?

    If it’s ironic that efficient has three syllables, consider the humor in Polonius’ speech about brevity being the soul of wit. ;-) We usually only quote that one line, but it’s contained in a very, very, very, VERY long speech, and that fact is absolutely the punchline.

    My Mom had the look. Even high school seniors were afraid of the look, even when she was in her late 70’s

    Parsimonious would have been a better choice.

    And there’s no such word as gullible. Look it up.
