Ditto here for all the Airbii, as well as the Tristar, CRJ or ERJ.
ATR, we just call an ATR. Haven't see one in person, so that rarely comes up.
As for the others, we say:
Dash8 and just Avro.

As for the Boeings, we say as follows:

Seven o Seven, Seven-Seventeen, Seven-Twenty Seven, Seven-Thirty Seven, Seven-Forty Seven, Seven-Fifty Seven, Seven-Sixty Seven, Triple Seven, And Seven-Eighty Seven.

When I say the names of Boeing aircraft I usually leave out the last seven in the name. For instance, when I see a 747 I call it a "Seven Four" This is common practice for UPS ramp employees at SDF.

It is interesting that most people call the 707 the 7-OH-7, using the letter for the middle character, rather than 7-ZERO-7. We substitute the letter "O" for a number zero.
Boeing Flown: 701,702,703;717;720;721,722;731,732,733,734,735,737,738,739;741,742,743,744,747SP;752,753;762,763;772,773.

I actually tend to call that one the Triple 7. Thanks for reminding me about that.

I pronounce them pretty much the same as those above except the;

A318 - Ay three one eight
A319 - Ay three one nine(r)

The Boeings for me tend to be
757 - Seven Five Seven
or 737 - Seven Three Seven

I would rarely say Seven Forty Seven, I don't know why though.

The 777 I will either call a Triple 7 or a T7 and I also tend to drop the last '7' off the Boeings when talking to other crews or enthusiasts.

Then there are the Dee See Ten
of course I can't forget the goold ole "Bee Ay See one eleven" or "BAC" depending again if its crew/enthusiasts or general folks.

"Lady" Concorde was & is simply "Concorde" I can't think of anyone who calls her the full Aerospatille.............
