    So, I was making some VEGGIE STEW (zomgwtfbbq DELICIOUS!), and the TV was on in the background.

    a "singulair" ad came on. I was only listening, and when I heard "singulair" I immediately thought "cingular"

    When you hear them said aloud, they sound exactly the same.

    Why do you think Cingular hasn't sued Singulair's pharmaceutical company (or the other way around) over trademark or copyright infringement?

    I'm just curious, it's kind of bugging me. :p

    Singuliar is made by Merck. It treats allergeies by and there is also a Singuliar for Athsma. Singulair is not exactly like Cingular. Singulair is pernounced more with focus on the last "air" because it has to do with breathing- as you will see in their logo:

    Cingular: Sing-you-lar (as in far or Mars)

    Singulair: Sing-You-lair (as in lair or hair or share)

    They do sound the same but again sound different and are totally different.

    Yeah yeah yeah. I know what Cingular is, but I didn't know what Singulair was.

    Now I know.

    PS- After Katie posted the link I saw a comercial for Singulair! lol.

    Actually, it's more like:

    Cingular = SING-you-ler (the word "singular", basically)
    Singulair = sin-gyou-LAIR (accent on last syllable)
