What do you say? Skaalop...like scatter? I say scollop...like trollop!
Interestingly, there are 2 spellings: scollop and scallop. I spell it scollop. You probably spell it "scallop"!

In Maine a couple of years back, I had a waitress almost laugh her head off when I asked for Scaalops. She not too gently corrected the pronunciation to scahlops.
