Default Re: Pronunciations

Languages always evolve, and not necessarily for the better.

The thought of pronouncing the name of a car body style like the name of a chicken habitat gives me the willies.
Mechanical engineering 101: If you put an adjustment knob, screw, bolt, or tolerance specs on something, some people will immediately fiddle with it. If you mark it DO NOT TOUCH everyone will mess with it.
