H'mmm: After consulting the oed, the preferred is CLO (o as in ''o'') bet (as in wanna bet) a (as in give me just a pound of....) sol (as in solar) pro (as on pro vs. Con) pri (as premature) o (as in o my) nate (rhymes with ate) hoped it helped.

Interesting. I have never once heard anyone in the Mid West pronounce it that way. We say: clo-beta (as in the greek letter), sol (as in someone named Solomon.) I wonder how it is in Nashville where I trained? I had to learn a whole new medical pronunciation when I moved back up north :_)
