You would have never have seen that episode if I hadn't decided to watch just season 8 of the office instead of sitting through the whole thing to get to James Spader, so you're welcome. My time saving abilities are here for you.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone ever pronounce it "pome."

I've only heard anyone say it (including me) with a softer, schwa-sounding second syllable.

I say "poh-um" but I do say it fast and can understand how one might think it's pome.

It's generally pronounced "poyme" here.

Huh. A couple of Americans in a class I had once were insistent that it was pronounced "pome" and were amused by how we pronounce it more like "poh-um".

This quiz put my closest areas as San Antonio and the DFW Metroplex. Close; I'm between the two on I-35. I also have a lot of red in Houston, Southern California, and the San Francisco Bay Area. I am least similar to Providence, Buffalo, and Philadelphia.

I pronounce "crayon" mostly like "cran," but there's just the hint of a second syllable in there.
