It has also been called "Lagas Greek" because the common word λογος becomes λαγας. Whatever my opinion is worth of, this Americanism is the worst kind of insult towards the rest of the world. I would have listened Bill Mounce's audio lectures but had to stop after the first minutes because I couldn't stand his pronounciation... and I really did want to listen to them.
Two people in our small Greek reading group use this pronunciation, I find it hard to avoid laughing when they say ὅτι, which they pronounce "hottie". So I would probably call this "hottie Greek".
