>From a comment posted to A Way with Words:

"Growing up on the east coast I heard "deck-aid" all my life. But then in
2009 I moved to the upper midwest and started hearing "dek-kid" -- not
universally, but frequently enough that it's not a fluke."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
