The pronunciation I like the most, though, is 5-tetra-4.

On another note, have you read my handout from Tetration in Context? (also mentioned here) in which I talk a little bit about that. Ignore the "hyper-power" terminology, as I have replaced this in my head with GFR's less-of-a-misnomer: "tower".
