Because they mean two different things.
Be careful, we know how to Wikipedia:

How can that possibly bug the shit out of you? All they had to do was spell it as "demon" from the start if that's what they wanted.

It's pronounced "demon", like "demon", but everyone pronounces it "daymon", which bugs the SHIT outta me. But you get a pass, because you are a dear, cherished friend.

Well how do you pronounce it, dickcheese?

Thanks. Now, back to the topic!

What was the topic?

Fine. day-mon, emphasis on the first syllable. That is what I would say.

I'm not going to answer this until you tell us all how you pronounce "daemon" out loud.
Day-ee-mohn. Day-ee-mohn. Day-ee-mohn come and he won' go home.

People still argue about the pronunciation of GIF, and the proper way to pronounce NES is back in the news this month. We still haven't mastered three-letter words. We're never going to get to six-letter ones like daemon, and zbeqbzx is right out.
Yeah this boggles the mind. The first word of GIF is "Graphics" so it doesn't make any sense to me to pronounce the G like Jeffery. Are people really saying N.E.S. like "Ness"?

It's like asking how I would say, "Zbeqbzx."
It would only be like that if I also provided the Cambridge dictionary's UK and US pronunciations of the word along with its phonetic spelling, otherwise it would be nothing like the example you provided.

How could you have worked in the IT field for decades and never heard someone say "daemon".

Re: daemon oddness

by Ice Cream Jonsey » Mon Aug 13, 2018 8:52 pm

I don't know how else to explain it - having never heard the word said out loud in this context, I would have no pronunciation for it.

It's like asking how I would say, "Zbeqbzx."

Rhymes with Ænima.

Daemon is the southern word for demon.

Re: daemon oddness

I'm not asking how it should be pronounced. I was asking how ICJ would pronounce it.

Is it "day-mon" or "dee-mon"? (The Jamaican accent is assumed.)
It's actually just a spelling variant of "demon" and is pronounced the exact same way:

phonetically: /ˈdēmən/
