Just the japanese pronunciation for the word "kakarot" since the Japanese base their words on spoken sylables, there for ending in a conventional vowel sound. (ie: you pronounce "t" at the end of a word as "to" or "ta" depending on the word)

[color=red][size=1][font=arial]Hey, Kakarot and Goku are equally cool ^_^

And, yes, Vegeta slips up a couple times towards the end and says Goku...in the FUNi dub. Don't know about the original Japanese, but its possible (when Vegeta started to become truly good, he came more to terms with the Earth race, and thusly Goku's name).

Yeah, you must watch DBGT online or something. Also in the ***. version Goku is pronounced "Gokou"

Edit: ROFL They have a bleep on the abreviation for Japanesse.

Goku and Gokou are the same pronunciation.... it's just a differnet American style of spelling it. They both sound like GO-KUU

I think that Vageta calls Goku "Kakarot" because he is trying to remind Goku of his heritage. I think that Kakarot is Goku's saiyan name, and Vegeta is trying to remind Goku of that.
