Since it''s German, eu is always oy, so oiler is correct As for those Japanise guys that had the idea that helped solve fermat''s last theorem, anyone know that?

It''s ''oiler''.

Enough people pronounce it ''uuler'' (incorrectly) that they can convince each other they''re right.

Yeah, it''s oiler. I''ve never actually heard anyone pronounce it otherwise, except for when I first pronounced it years ago, and was promptly corrected.

We all speak diffrent languages.
For instance, in sweden the money in USA is called ''dollar'' and spelled ''dollar'', but we do not pronounce it as you americans.

Pronounce it as it would be pronounced in your country.
